Phoenix residents and visitors in town for Super Bowl are invited to stop by the Pueblo Grande Museum on Thursday, Feb. 9 from 7-8 p.m. to celebrate the opening of their new exhibit, A:shiwi A:wan Ulohnanne: The Zuni World.
The exhibit, on loan from the A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center, uses art as a means for mapping and has become a metaphor for the power of maps. Maps act as a physical expression of one’s place in the world and the universe.
Over time, the Zuni world has been remapped, with names changed, boundaries drawn, and cultural presence erased. The Zuni World exhibit challenges these assumptions through 31 artistic representations of Zuni maps and places in the Southwest.
Representatives from the A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center will give a presentation about the exhibit. The presentation will discuss how the A:shiwi/Zuni people continue to carry on the importance of the land their ancestry migrated through and understand their identity is connected to the landscapes that color the region.
A:shiwi A:wan Ulohnanne: The Zuni World will be on display at Pueblo Grande Museum from Feb. 9- Sept. 17.
