Message from the President
Because of the continuing risk of community transmission of the COVID-19 virus, SAR’s campus remains closed until public health authorities deem it safe for us to resume in-person events.
In March 2020 we transitioned from live events to a robust schedule of online offerings that include behind-the-scenes access to our scholars, artists, and collections.
Our online events have given us new ways to share innovative content that illuminates topics of broad public concern. Online platforms allow us to serve our longstanding members as well as a growing global audience. With challenge comes opportunity.
Although we look forward to the day when we will again be able to meet face-to-face, I hope you will join us as we pursue SAR’s important mission by electronic means.

In 1970 former SAR president Douglas Schwartz began test excavations at the fourteenth-century Pueblo site of Arroyo Hondo, located approximately five miles south of Santa Fe. Earlier this year, SAR made the decision to transfer its only archaeological collection to the Center for New Mexico Archaeology, the state repository for such collections, where it will be able to receive more specialized care.
Last week, we lost two members of our SAR family. On Sunday, February 14, Art Wolf, the first curator of collections for the Indian Arts Research Center passed away. Just a few days later, 2006 Eric and Barbara Dobkin Native artist fellow Christine McHorse also began her journey into the next world. Read more about their work and legacies.
In a conversation with SAR’s director of communications and public programs, Ruth Van Dyke describes how the Ancestral Puebloan builders in Chaco Canyon tried to create a “sense of place that emphasized Chaco as the center. Chaco was the fulcrum, and you can see this on the landscape.”
Many thanks for your continued support of SAR during this challenging time.
