Exhibit at Hiwan Homestead Museum

Hiwan Homestead Museum is very pleased to announce its newest exhibit, Katsinas in Clay: Hopi Tiles 1882-Present. The exhibit consists of the third-largest collection of antique Hopi tiles in the world, as well as a smaller collection of contemporary tiles. The collections are on loan from Tad Anderman of Albuquerque, New Mexico. There are more than 160 antique tiles dating from 1882 until approximately 1910, and more than 20 tiles done by contemporary Hopi-Tewa artist Mark Tahbo between 2007 and 2009. “Katsinas in Clay” will be the first time that this private collection will be on display in a public forum.

The exhibit will be open to the public Tuesday, April 27 through Sunday, November 21, 2010, and can be seen during the Museum’s open hours. Hiwan Homestead Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday, noon to 5 PM September through May, and 11 AM to 5 PM June through August. Please call 720-497-7650 for more information.
