The first artwork ever to be displayed at the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum belonged to Robert “Shoofly” Shufelt. Fifteen years after he graciously loaned some of his lithographs for a temporary exhibit, Shufelt and his wife, Julie, donated his collection to the museum for a long-term exhibition.
Join us for "He Walks with Thunds," "I Am Thy Weapon," and a sneak peek of "Raven." Screenings will be followed by a talk with Benally, who has won Best Documentary in SWAIA’s annual Class ’X’ Moving Images competition and has been selected for the Sundance Institute Native Filmmakers Lab.
THIS EVENT - and admission to the Museum - are FREE on Sunday, January 8.
Folk Art is a treasure, and Lloyd’s Treasure Chest offers a participatory gallery experience highlighting the Museum’s permanent collection of over 136,000 objects of international folk art from over 100 countries, representing thousands of unique cultures. Because the entire collection can never be on view at the same time, collections are carefully stored and cared for in rooms such as our Neutrogena Vault, which visitors can view from the Treasure Chest gallery.
