“Ancestral Homelands:
Connection to Land, Space and Time”

This contemporary art exhibit melds ancient Native American traditions to showcase history from a modern point of view at the Anasazi Heritage Center in Dolores.   The juried art show features works by students, alumni, faculty and staff from the Institute of American Indian Arts community in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The theme for the exhibit was inspired by the concept that modern Indigenous peoples’ art is a creative expression that reflects an ingrained connection to their ancestors and to the land.  

The Anasazi Heritage Center (27501 Hwy. 184 in Dolores) is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the ‘Ancestral Homelands Connection to Land, Space and Time’ exhibit is on display through November 2015.
