Brian Vallo, Director of the Indian Arts Research CenterBrian Vallo has been the governor of Acoma Pueblo since January 2019. Before, he served as the director of the IARC at SAR for four years. As the IARC director, Vallo led a significant and nationally-recognized initiative on proper stewardship of Native American collections by spearheading the development and 2016 publication of a protocol for how source communities and collecting institutions can work together, known as the Guidelines for Collaboration. Vallo advised museum curators and exhibition-design teams on the implementation of the Guidelines, including recent work with the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Field Museum in Chicago. Under his guidance, the IARC collections grew to over 12,000 works of primarily Southwestern Native American art that span the sixth century to the present and SAR’s Native American artist fellowship program continued to thrive. In his new role as the Governor of Acoma Pueblo, Vallo continues to be influential in the emerging dialogue concerning source communities and collecting institutions.
