Additions to the Collection

The Indian Arts Research Center added three items to its permanent collection during the past year. Dwight and Lori Lanmon contributed a c. 1900 Zuni water jar with varnish on the interior, which may have been an early attempt at waterproofing techniques aimed at increasing marketability of Pueblo ceramics for uses such as flower pots in the early twentieth century.

Linda Aguilar (Chumash), 2011 Eric and Barbara Dobkin Native American Artist Fellow, donated a colorful mixed media and horsehair basketry installation piece titled “The Bingo One,” which she created during her fellowship as part of a larger installation titled “Going Vegas,” a commentary on the role of casinos in many Native communities.
