The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture (MIAC) invites you to help us honor Dan Namingha’s achievements and explore the exhibition Landscape of an Artist: Living Treasure Dan Namingha.
Every year at Native Treasures: Indian Arts Festival, the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture honors an artist as a MIAC Living Treasure. And, this year the MIAC Living Treasure honor goes to Dan Namingha (Tewa/Hopi).
Museum director Della Warrior said, “Dan Namingha is part of a distinguished family of artists. He’s the great-great-grandson of famed Hopi-Tewa potter Nampeyo (1856-1942) and his sons Arlo and Michael are artists as well. Dan is a highly regarded artist for works that respectfully interpret Native culture and demonstrate his concern for Mother Earth. And, it is with great pleasure that MIAC presents this exhibition of his work, Landscape of an Artist, in conjunction with Dan being honored as this year’s Living Treasure.”
Landscape of an Artist: Living Treasure Dan Namingha is on display through September 11, 2016 at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, 710 Camino Lejo, on Museum Hill.
