Three Ways to Experience Hopi Art, History, and Culture This Summer!
#1 Visit the museum! 
The Supernaturals: Contemporary Katsinas from the Collection is a special exhibit focusing on the contemporary tradition of katsina carving by master craftsmen.  Several of the works included in the show are by award-winning artists, and each piece features dynamic movement and rich colors not typically seen in katsina carvings used for ceremonial purposes.  There are also several works by notable Hopi artists in our Southwest pottery gallery as well as our Santa Fe Indian School Style exhibit.
See our website for more information.
#2 Sign Up for the MRM Hopi Trip! 
This fall, the MRM is embarking on two amazing trips throughout the Southwest, "On the Trail of the Anasazi," September 10-16, and "On the Trail of the Hopi," October 15-21. The latter is especially unique because we will be visiting the ancestral sites of Walnut Canyon, Homolovi, and Wupatki, as well as Blue Canyon and several more places only accessible with a Hopi guide.  Travelers will also enjoy pottery and katsina carving demonstrations. two nights at the historic Fred Harvey La Posada hotel, traditional Hopi cuisine, and comfortable travel and lodging for the entire trip.

#3 Attend the MRM's Annual Turquoise Gala!
This year's event will be held on August 20th at the beautiful Sagebrush Inn and Convention Center in Taos.  In addition to celebrating our 60th anniversary, we will be honoring the legacies of Millicent Rogers and Frank Waters by featuring items from both of their estates.  Waters was a renowned writer focusing on the history and culture of the Southwest, and numerous works from his personal art collection will be available in our live and silent auctions.  Below are just two examples of the one-of-a-kind artworks that will be showcased at this event.  On the left is the original woodcut print by Don Perceval that was used to illustrate Waters' book, The Man Who Killed the Deer, and on the right is a gorgeous portrait of Waters by the painter Rod Goebel.
