Virtual Events

Artist in Their Residence

Photograph by Featured Artist, Boderra Joe, titled "Twin Lakes Home".  Boderra and her work will be featured February 1- 14, 2021

Artists in Their Residence is a program at Bosque Redondo Memorial that highlights the art and scholarly work of local Native Americans.  During their residency, each artist or scholar will create a video of themselves demonstrating their craft, which will premiere on the New Mexico Historic Site's Facebook page (dates and times will be announced). Viewers will have an opportunity to engage with and ask questions directly to the artist during the premiere!


The featured work will then be donated by the artist or scholar to be a part of our exhibit. The Native American artists and scholars involved in the program cover a wide range of mediums, including poetry, silversmithing, jewelry designing, weaving, moccasin making, clothing designing, basket making, and photography. 

Here is the schedule of events:
