The Herd Dance, by Palbita Velarde, mural
More than 100 artists in New Mexico, including 30 Native Americans, worked on New Deal art projects in the ’30s. Mostly, their work has not been researched.
As part of the 75th anniversary of the New Deal, that’s changing, reports the NYTimes. Through August, a group show of indian artists who worked under the Public Works of Art Project is on display at the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture/Laboratory of Anthropology in Santa Fe.
