There will also be a special traditional Native dance schedule on Veterans Day: The Kallestewa dance group of Zuni Pueblo will offer traditional dances at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
"We could never possibly express the full depth of gratitude we feel towards veterans and their sacrifices," says Monique Fragua (Jemez), IPCC Museum Director. "We honor their service by offering these heartfelt gestures."
Veterans Day weekend is a prime time to visit the IPCC as it also marks the highly anticipated opening of "Spirit Lines," offering the rare opportunity to experience the complete collection of first edition prints by famed Santa Clara Pueblo artist Helen Hardin.
"Spirit Lines" includes Hardin's "Woman Series," her three most famous etchings. Taken together, "Changing Woman," "Medicine Woman," and "Listening Woman" reflect Hardin's personal struggle and evolution during the last three years of her life.
"We're so honored and excited to bring Helen Hardin's work back home to Albuquerque," says Rachel Moore (Hopi), IPCC Curator of Exhibitions. "She loved this city, since she once said it was the only place she truly felt accepted. Of all the art galleries and museums where her work could go, it's wonderful to welcome it to the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, where we can really delve into her life story and cultural connections."
The "Spirit Lines" exhibit can be seen seven days a week during the regular museum hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is free with museum admission. Admission for veterans is FREE on Veterans Day.
Also taking place on Veterans Day is the 7th Annual Pueblo Fiber Arts Show and Sale from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. This annual celebration coordinated by the Pueblo Fiber Arts Guild is the only show in the world devoted exclusively to one of the oldest Pueblo art forms. No Pueblo event is complete without traditional weavings, which lend color and life to traditional celebrations. Join this group of talented artists coming together for this showcase of Pueblo weaving, embroidery, spinning, knitting, crochet, sewing, and basketry. Free with museum admission. Admission for veterans is FREE on Veterans Day.
