Honored in 2012 with the "Lifetime Achievement Allan Houser Legacy Award" for Pueblo potters by the SWAIA Santa Fe Indian Market, Cruz’s work is traditional, but he employs six different styles and raw materials that he gathers from several sites.

Exhibit Opening - From Combat to Carpets: The Art of Afghan War Rugs
Museum of International Folk Art
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

War rugs “are the production of women artists, and of communities speaking globally not just locally,” said co-curator Annemarie Sawkins. “War rugs reflect Afghanistan’s historic and modern place as a busy cultural crossroads. They reveal the observant and innovative nature of the people who produced them.” Afghan “war rugs” gained international attention following the Soviet invasion of 1979 when millions of refugees fled to neighboring Pakistan and Iran. Join us for a special version of this traveling show including pieces from the MOIFA collection.

1:00 pm -  Talk by curator Annemarie Sawkins

2:00 pm - Refreshments provided by the Women’s Board.

2:00 - 4:00 p.m. - Hands-on weaving activity for all ages

Curators Examine Your Treasures

MIAC Curators gather in the lobby of the Museum on the third Wednesday of each month awaiting whatever treasures may walk through the door. This is your opportunity to bring a family heirloom, something special from your collection, or a piece you know nothing about. Naturally, curators prefer to examine items from the Southwest, but they will look at anything you bring in for review.

 

Federal law prohibits curators from "appraising" any items, but they will direct you to appropriate resources.

Canes of Power Film Screening
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
with Dr. Matthew Martinez

The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture announces a screening of Canes of Power. Following the film, a Q&A will be led by Dr. Matthew Martinez, the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture’s deputy director, and associate producer of the film.

Canes of Power, narrated by Cherokee Actor Wes Studi – a recent Academy Award recipient – is the story of President Abraham Lincoln’s gift of engraved wood canes gifted to each of New Mexico’s 19 Pueblo nations. The canes symbolized the recognition of tribal sovereignty at the very same time 13 Southern states were seeking their own sovereignty (in the form of succession) from the United States.

Community Through Making in the Gallery of Conscience

Meet the artists! Join MOIFA in celebrating recent collaborations with local artists as part of the ongoing museum exhibition Community Through Making in the Gallery of Conscience:

Eliza Naranjo Morse and the 1st and 4th grade Cultural Arts classes at the Kha’p’o Community School

Inspired by the work of international artists who use recycled materials, the students spent the fall semester creating the many weavings, sculptures and digital artworks that will be on display in the gallery.

 Alas de Agua Art collective and Three Sisters Collective

In July, members of two local collectives joined with founders of Peruvian art collective, Amapolay, to create a public mural on the south side of Santa Fe. Titled Fronteras y Semillas/ Borders and Seeds, the mural explores the deep connections across the Americas. The mural is located on Avenida Contenta on the corner of Monte Verde Place. At the museum, see images of the mural and videos of it being painted.

Community Through Making now on exhibit through May 3, 2020
