I will be giving a public information session talking about the Peace Corps, our mission, volunteering and the application process. Anyone interested in the Peace Corps is welcome. I will have plenty of time for questions.
This June 2015, the Wheelwright Museum will open the Center for the Study of Southwestern Jewelry, our first major gallery expansion in our 78-year history, and the first exhibition space anywhere devoted permanently to the past, present, and future of Native American jewelry and related traditions.
The Members' Day will begin with a blessing and ribbon cutting, and will also feature gallery viewing sessions, a children's activity, sandpainting demos by Zachariah Ben, the Pueblo of Pojoaque Youth Hoop Dancers, storytelling and music with Robin Easton and Stephen Fadden, Native food vendor The Feasting Place, a Zuni Fetish Education Booth with Kent McManis, a Turquoise Education Booth with father-daughter duo Joe E. Tanner and Emerald Tanner, and demonstrations by Native jewelers. Our demonstrating jewelers for the Members' Day are Jared Chavez, Richard Chavez, Dale Edaakie, Angie Reano Owen, Norbert Peshlakai, Perry Shorty, and Liz Wallace. A special selection of jewelry will also be available in the Case Trading Post throughout the weekend. Please visit www.wheelwright.org for a full schedule of events and times.
