This exhibition, in the Lloyd Kiva New Gallery in the Museum Store, features Avis Charley’s (Spirit Lake Tribe, Diné) new ledger art painted on antique ledger paper. Charley explains, “It’s about challenging the popular historical black-and-white images of defeat of our people. It’s also about updating and reclaiming our narrative—celebrating our strength and presence, today and yesterday.”

The Museum Store will have four of Charley’s new ledger art works on display (available for purchase). For more information, please contact IAIA Stores Director Elissa W. Wheeler at (505) 428-5911 or at elissa.wheeler@iaia.edu.

For accommodations, contact the ADA office seven days in advance at adaoffice@iaia.edu or (505) 424-5707.
