Collecting Jewelry: Conversation with the Curator
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Conversations with Michael Roanhorse, Jennifer Curtis and Allen Aragon

Continuing public programming for Collecting Jewelry: H. P. Mera’s Trip to Navajo Country in 1932, the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture are pleased to host three contemporary Navajo/Diné jewelers in conversation with exhibition curator Ross Altshuler and MIAC assistant curator, Lillia McEnaney. Together, these artists will tell their memories of learning how to make jewelry, share stories about their own artistic inspirations and innovations, and reflect on the larger current moment in the Native art world.

Collecting Jewelry showcases 160 pieces of jewelry made between 1880-1930 that Dr. Mera gathered. These pieces were made with rudimentary tools and without available references for style and technique. The amazing pieces created form the basis of Navajo/Diné silversmithing and inspired the generations that followed.

Native Pottery Demonstration Series
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Franklin Peters (Acoma Pueblo)

Born into the Sky Clan on Acoma Pueblo, Franklin Peters learned the art of pottery making as he grew up surrounded by some of Acoma’s most distinguished potters. 

In 2011, Franklin was honored with the Rollin and Mary Ella King Native Artist Fellowship at the School for Advanced Research in Santa Fe. While there he studied the methods and designs of his Acoma ancestors and how to incorporate those methods and designs into his contemporary work. Today, Franklin’s pottery is characterized by bold slips and colors. He likes sharp lines in his striking mixes of traditional and contemporary Acoma and Laguna designs. 

Being from the Sky Clan, Franklin says he is always praying for rain. On his pots, the thin fine lines symbolize rain and those constant prayers.
