An Artful Finish: IAIA, BFA Graduate Exhibition

Santa Fe, NM | Mar 10, 2011 –

The Institute of American Indian Arts announces the 2011 BFA Graduate Art Exhibition, Literary Readings and Film Screenings. The opening reception for “Memory, Texture and Time” is in conjunction with the exhibit opening of “HIDE: Skin as Material and Metaphor” at the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts.

An opening reception is being held on Friday, April 15 from 5-7 pm at the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts: 108 Cathedral Pl., Santa Fe, NM 87501. The BFA exhibition runs through May 12, 2011.

BFA Creative Writing Readings and Moving Images Screenings are scheduled for Sunday, May 1, 2011, 1-3 pm at the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts.

IAIA students have invested themselves to ponder, reflect, critique and devote their time to represent culminating artworks based on the relationships between the themes of memory, texture and time. Their individual perspective helps them to share experiences they have faced and stories they are told. As time passes, the layers of memory build up and unfold as texture in their work.
