New Mexico Museum of Art

Jonathan Batkin, director of the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian in Santa Fe, will discuss the history and evolution of textile arts in the surrounding Pueblo communities. Ramona Sakiestewa is a contemporary Native American artist who lives and works in Santa Fe. She is known for her tapestries and her public art and architectural installations. This presentation will illustrate how textiles not only provided the artists with income but how some of them recounted ceremonial symbols and told stories of historical significance through the designs.
