2019 Native Treasures Living Treasures

MIAC is excited to announce that brothers Mateo and Diego Romero (Cochiti Pueblo) have been selected as this year's Living Treasures for the MIAC Native Treasures Arts Festival. 

“Twenty-five years have passed since Diego and Mateo Romero first debuted their work at MIAC with the groundbreaking Chongo Brothers exhibition,” said Della Warrior (Otoe-Missouria), director of MIAC. “While their individual careers continue to soar, we are honored to spotlight their talent, unique perspectives and distinct artistic styles with an exhibition of their current work scheduled to open this March.” 

The Brothers Chongo: A Tragic Comedy in Two Parts will open in MIAC’s Diker Gallery March 31, 2019 through March 1, 2020.
