Panel Title : Chaco Heritage: Contemporary Native American Artists Explore Ancient Traditions

Description: “With a grant from the NEA-NPS initiative Imagine Your Parks, the Maxwell Museum offered 10 artist residencies for access to its Chaco archeological collections and those of the Chaco Culture National Historical Park Museum. CCNHP, a World Heritage Site in northwest New Mexico and center for inspiration and identity, is the ancestral home of contemporary Puebloan and Navajo peoples. Artists from descendant communities in Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas were selected to explore these collections and visit the Park. This roundtable provides a forum for participating artists to present their interpretations and experiences to the public.”
