Chaco Heritage Project Roundtable Discussion, Society for Applied Anthropology Annual Meeting//March 7, 2017

Ramona will be participating in a roundtable discussion during the Society for Applied Anthropology Annual Meeting at the La Fonda Hotel in Santa Fe, NM.

With a $40,000 grant from the NEA-NPS initiative, Imagine Your Parks, the Maxwell Museum offered ten artist residencies for access to its Chaco archaeological collections and those of the Chaco Culture National Historical Park Museum. A World Heritage Site in northwest New Mexico and center of inspiration and identity, CNHP is the ancestral home of contemporary Puebloan and Navajo peoples. Artists from descendant communities in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas were selected to explore these collections and visit the park. This roundtable provides a forum for participating artists to present their interpretations and experiences to the public.

Dr. Lea S. McChesney, Curator at the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology at UNM, will moderate the roundtable, entitled “Chaco Heritage: Contemporary Native American Artists Explore Ancient Traditions,” which will be held in the North Ballroom of the La Fonda Hotel from 10:00 – 11:50 am on March 28, 2017. The Tuesday sessions of the annual meeting are open to the public. www.sfaa.net/annual-meeting

Tempe Center for the Arts lobby carpet refresh//September 22, 2016

finalcarpetAfter ten years of foot traffic and events, the carpet I designed for the Tempe Center for the Arts lobby will be replaced to give the Center a freshening. Waterflow is 7,800 square feet of custom carpet. The design is based on a watercolor. The flow of bubbles moves from the lobby to the exterior windows overlooking and infinity pool and beyond that, a view of the Rio Salado.
