MIAC | May 2024

We are very excited for the opening of the 2024 Living Treasure exhibition featuring couture fashion designer Patricia Michaels of Taos Pueblo. Painted by Hand opened to the public this past Sunday, May 5th in the Lloyd Kiva New Gallery. Thank you to the sponsors and donors who help to make exciting, contemporary exhibitions like this possible!

2024 Native Treasures event tickets and sponsorship opportunities are available. Sponsors $1,000+ will be invited to a very special Living Treasure cocktail party at the home of Joel McHorse (Taos Pueblo) on Saturday, May 11. Former Living Treasures artists and other notable Native artists will be in attendance. Sponsorships also include Friday Night Market tickets and more.

Our supporters at the Santa Fe Skin Institute are donating 10% of all services scheduled between May 15-29 to the Native Treasures Art Market! Visit santafeskin.com for a list of services, then call 505-772-0564 to book. Mention 'Native Treasures' and 10% of your service will be donated to support to the market event.

Lasty, we are thrilled to announce that MIAC will be a recipient of a $500,000 gift from the Susan S. Martin Charitable Fund. This gift will support updates at the Laboratory of Anthropology as well as exhibitions and educational programming. MIAC is also going to be the recipient of a $500,000 allocation from Senator Heinrich. The federal funding will be used to digitize and create a catalog of a portion of their archives to increase access for scholars, educators, artists, and the wider public. We are thrilled for MIAC and excited to see how the museum transforms this generosity into important programs and updates.
