Archaeologist Edgar Lee Hewett had a profound impact on art as it developed in New Mexico and beyond. During the early 1900s, he established a school and two major museums in Santa Fe, today known as the School for Advanced Research, the Museum of New Mexico, and the New Mexico Museum of Art. In addition to training the first generation of southwestern archaeologists, he provided jobs and studio space for Santa Fe’s first resident artists and played a key role in the development of Pueblo painting. He provided support for young Pueblo artists such as Fred Kabotie, and hosted the world’s first exhibition of Pueblo watercolor painting. His role in establishing the Southwest Indian Fair, precursor to today’s Santa Fe Indian Market, will be discussed, and the artists’ relationship with Hewett will be examined.

Presentations and panel discussions will take place at St. Francis Auditorium at 107 West Palace Ave. at the New Mexico Museum of Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
