Pueblo People: Ancient Traditions, Modern Lives


An exhibition of photographs by Marcia Keegan depicting the lives of Pueblo Indians will be on display at The Philbrook Museum of Art Sept. 30, 1998 - Jan. 3, 1999. Pueblo People: Ancient Traditions, Modern Lives captures the personal dimensions of Indian culture inside the New Mexico Pueblos. Included are 25 color photographs taken recently and over the past 30 years. This exhibition presents a portrait of the daily lives of an ages-old culture, the individuals and communities who keep it alive, and the beautiful villages in which they have lived for hundreds, perhaps thousand of years.

Keegan, a world-renown writer and photographer who makes her home in Sante Fe, has photographed the Navajo country and Pueblos for most of her life. She is the only phototgrapher to date who has been allowed to take photographs in all of the New Mexico Pueblos. She has published numerous books, and her photographs are in the permanent collections of The Museum of Modern Art, The Library of Congress, and other institutions.

Pueblo People is sponsored by McGraw Davisson Stewart Realtors, and will be on display in the La Fortune Mezzanine Gallery.
