Patrick and I have been working with The Heard Museum for many years and are always happy to share news of the exciting events happening there. This summer Heard Museum North Scottsdale, the Heard’s community branch, has a photography contest!
Through the Lens: Diné Photographers, opens June 12. This thought-provoking exhibition of work by contemporary Navajo photographers, curated by the Navajo Nation Museum, marks the first time ever that a show curated by an American Indian arts/culture museum has traveled to the Heard. This juried show will present a fascinating and diverse range of photographers and subject matter. Through these compelling images, museum visitors will see the many ways Navajo photographers celebrate the beauty and comment on their home, their land and contemporary life. The photographs will also provide an opportunity to explore the similarities and differences between Navajo culture and mainstream culture via themes such as rites of passage, sports, family and love of the land.
