Exhibition Closing Discussion—Collecting Jewelry: Conversations with the Artists

Cody Sanderson (Navajo), Connie Tsosie Gaussoin ( Picuris Pueblo/Navajo) and Liz Wallace (Maidu/Washoe/Navajo)

10:00 am through 11:00 am

To celebrate the closing of Collecting Jewelry: H. P. Mera’s Trip to Navajo Country in 1932, the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture are pleased to host three contemporary Navajo/Diné jewelers in conversation with exhibition curator Ross Altshuler and MIAC assistant curator, Lillia McEnaney. Together, these artists will tell their memories of learning how to make jewelry, share stories about their own artistic inspirations and innovations, and reflect on the larger current moment in the Native art world. 

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 5

CLEARLY INDIGENOUS - Jody Naranjo (Santa Clara Pueblo) + Harlan Reano (Santo Domingo Pueblo)

Thank you for registering for this morning’s Clearly Indigenous program with Jody Naranjo and Harlan Reano. Unfortunately, we will need to reschedule this event for a later date—I will directly email all registrants a new Zoom link once the new date/time is determined. 

Thank you again for your interest and ongoing support of the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture.

All the best,

Lillia McEnaney

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 12

Let’s Take a Look

12:00 pm through 2:00 pm

On January 12th, MIAC staff are returning to the museum’s virtual lobby to look at your treasures. Bring a weaving, ceramic pot, piece of jewelry (or something else!) to our Zoom meeting, and curator of ethnology Tony Chavarria (Santa Clara Pueblo), curator of archaeological research collections Julia Clifton, other staff members will attempt to identify and explain the item. Curators are experts in items from the Southwest, but are willing to take a look at anything that is “brought in.” Previous attendees have often found that the experience of chatting with a group of curators is often just as, or perhaps even more, informative and enjoyable than the identification of the object. Please note that federal and state policies prohibit curators from appraising an item; the museum neither appraises or authenticates works of art.
