#comingsoon PAINTED REFLECTIONS: ISOMERIC DESIGN IN ANCESTRAL PUEBLO POTTERY by Scott G. Ortman and Joseph Traugott

PAINTED REFLECTIONS examines design in Ancestral Pueblo pottery from various museum collections in the Southwest. The concept of isomeric design is based on an analogy with isomers in chemistry, which refers to compounds that are chemically identical but have mirror-image structures. The authors, an archaeologist and an art historian, use isomeric design to describe the use of paired forms that can be perceived as reversible on painted pottery. This book provides a new and fascinating perspective on Pueblo art and culture.

Ravenous Butterflies

“The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – which you had thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours.”
Alan Bennett

Heard Museum

Congratulations to our friends and colleagues at the Heard Museum on its 90th anniversary! Founder Maie Bartlett Heard was the sister of Florence Dibell Bartlett--founder of Santa Fe's Museum of International Folk Art! #becauseculturematters #TCCANNON #OfGodAndMortalMen #NativeAmericanBoloTies #Home #Rain #NativeAmericanartandculture #HeardMuseum

90 years ago today, Maie Bartlett Heard, curator Allie Walling BraMé along with a small group of friends and volunteers spent Christmas Day making final preparations for the opening of the Heard Museum. The next day, December 26, 1929, the Heard Museum began our now nine decade long and ongoing legacy of advancing American Indian Art.

This short video poem written, recorded and edited by longtime artist and friend of the Heard Museum, Steven Yazzie, is our very sincere thank you to you.

Happy Holidays!

Heard Museum 90th Celebration Poem, December 2019
“Home” By Steven J. Yazzie
Voiced by: Jenn Henry
Music: Better Now, Phillip Daniel Zach

Why do we come here to these walls painted shades of off white
In search of beauty
or memory
or place
Where the sounds of children can be heard echoing in these vast
and intimate spaces
And where everyone has just arrived here from a journey
What brings us to the feet of stone
or textile
or dried paint
In the galleries of our hearts and truths
Our histories are revealed
and our humanity ensured
This place of my youth and older age
This place of beauty
stewardship
and celebration
Is home

Jimmy Santiago Baca

Coming Soon!
Laughing in the Light is a reflection on—and reckoning of—self by acclaimed poet and writer Jimmy Santiago Baca. This newest collection of essays picks up where Baca’s earlier celebrated book, Working in the Dark, left off. It is the writer’s first attempt to revisit the past twenty years with a renewed heart and wizened spirit as he shares his experiences, the tough lessons he has learned, and how his views have changed. No topic is off the table as Baca delves deep into themes ranging from arts, culture, and education to justice reform.

Native-Americans have been influential in the U.S. military for more than 200 years. They assisted George Washington, served during the War of 1812 and have continued to defend the country into the 21st century.
