For a dose of culture and history, check out the new exhibit at the National Museum of Women, The Southwest of Maria Martinez and Laura Gilpin. Through the lens of photographer Laura Gilpin and the pottery of Maria Martinez, the exhibition illuminates a more nuanced and dynamic environment in which women created art embodying a distinctively modern aesthetic.
You’ll be entranced by Martinez’ strikingly modern-looking vessels, which are inspired by ancient Pueblo artistic traditions, and through the documentary-style aerial views and portraits captured by Gilpin, you’ll visit six decades of the Southwest and its people that you’ve likely never seen. Open now through May 14, 2017, "The Southwest of Maria Martinez and Laura Gilpin" is an exhibit that all ages will certainly enjoy exploring.
