Here, Now, and Always: Renovation and Renewal

Implementation of a reinterpretation of a permanent exhibition on Native American art of New Mexico and the Southwest at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture.

The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture (MIAC) in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in partnership with the Museum of New Mexico Foundation, requests a $400,000 Public Humanities Project implementation grant to support the renovation and renewal of the museum’s permanent exhibition Here, Now and Always. Two decades after its launch in 1997, a critical need to conserve objects on long-term display; opportunities to update humanities scholarship and conform to current museum standards for enhanced visitor experiences; a need to reflect constantly changing realities of life in Native America and ever-growing public interest in the history and contemporary culture of Native peoples of the Southwest necessitate full-scale renovation and redesign of the exhibition. Additionally, MIAC requests $60,000 for a two-year Position in Public Humanities to help develop and implement a community conversation series that promotes public discourse on significant issues impacting indigenous communities today.
