Member Preview: Here, Now and Always

July 1, 2022 12:00 pm
04:00 pm

Join us for the members-only preview and grand re-opening celebration of Here, Now and Always, the reimagined permanent exhibition at the Museum of Indian Arts And Culture.

From its beginnings in 1989 to the grand opening in 1997 and renovation beginning in 2021, Here, Now and Always has always been about community. For Indigenous people in the Southwest, the exhibition provides a unique space for sharing personal stories, oral histories and material culture. For the community of non-Native museum visitors, the exhibition has fostered a greater understanding of and appreciation for of Native peoples, as well as multifaceted stories of survival, creativity and change. After years of hard work and millions of dollars in private and public investment, the re-imagined exhibition will open to the public July 2 and 3, with an exclusive preview reserved for members on July 1.
