Native American Student Art Show
Showing in the South Gallery from October 28, 2023 through February 18, 2024. The Indian Pueblo’s Native American Student Art Show is a tradition nearly as old as the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center (IPCC). We founded the show in 1979 because we recognized that the preservation and evolution of Native culture lies with today’s children. Our youth are the bearers of our culture and have unique and honest perspectives to share. Through art they will be able to share those perspectives, explore their own creativity, and delve into their understandings of this year’s theme.
The IPCC’s Native American Student Art Show was established to encourage creativity among Native youth and to help them understand that the future preservation and evolution of Native culture lies with them. This year’s theme, “Celebrating Our Pollinators”, gives young artists the opportunity to take a closer look at the environment around us. How do our flowers, plants, and gardens thrive and provide for us? We, as Pueblo people, are thankful for our relationship with the pollinators, and these beautiful creatures are often seen in Pueblo artwork such as pottery, paintings, clothing, and books. The IPCC’s Native American Student Art Show is a showcase for students to share, through their art, how important pollinators are to our environment and our families.
Winning artists each receive a prize, and all participants can make their works available for sale and receive 100% of the proceeds. The curated and juried show will be on display through February 2024.
