Following months of renovation, the dust will soon settle in the South Gallery of the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center (IPCC). On Saturday, April 15, the Center will unveil two new temporary exhibits that explore contemporary Pueblo life. “Long Ago…” will present the rich tradition of storytelling by leading visitors through a series of Pueblo tales that convey timeless elements of the culture, while “Pueblo People & Our Modern Environment” will highlight their relationship to the land and natural resources. Both exhibits will be open to the public daily starting April 15 at 2401 12th St NW, Albuquerque.
These temporary exhibits will supplement the museum’s permanent exhibit “We Are of This Place: The Pueblo Story,” which opened almost exactly a year ago in April 2016 as part of the IPCC’s year-long 40th anniversary celebration. Its opening marked the first complete renovation of the museum since its founding in 1976 and has helped usher in a new season of growth for the IPCC.
