Support the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture’s permanent and changing exhibitions explore the distinctive cultures, histories, traditions and contemporary lives of Native peoples of the Southwest.
Museum exhibitions offer a range of topics and interests—from the archaeological discoveries and lessons of the ancient past; to the centuries-long development of pottery, basketry, silverwork and other artistic traditions; to the contemporary artists who are moving Native art and culture forward today. Native visions and voices permeate the galleries, including those of elders; artists such as Lloyd Kiva New, Dan Namingha and Roxanne Swentzell; and Native comic book illustrators, photographers and videographers. All told, the exhibitions represent a powerful continuum of Native life and artistry through time.
The State of New Mexico funds museum staff salaries and operating expenses, leaving the substance of the museum experience—exhibitions, collections care and public programs—dependent upon private philanthropic support.
Your gift to the Museum of New Mexico Foundation is an investment in what is required to create world-class exhibitions. This includes planning and preparation by curators, designers, fabricators, educators and registrars; costs of loans and shipping for borrowed works; research travel for curators; public education programs, marketing and more.
Your support helps provide the resources needed to create meaningful exhibitions.
