This book accompanies the exhibit of the same name at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture in Santa Fe New Mexico.
Cochiti and Santo Domingo pueblos may be separated by the Rio Grande, but for centuries they shared ceramic traditions. Influences from the outside world, however, brought major changes that resulted in the pueblos pursuing markedly different paths in their pottery styles.
With 250 pieces from the museum's collection, this exhibit illustrates those differences, and provides a fascinating look at the history and communities of these pueblos. Featured essayists are Antonio Chavarria, Chip Colwell-Chanthaphonh, Bruce Bernstein, Mateo Romero, J.J. Brody and book editor Valerie Verzuh.
