He will explore the subject extensively. Mark grew up in the Indian arts business. His first trip to Hopi was to the Snake Dance when he was about 9 months old.

In Search of Nampeyo

Lecture and Booksigning with Steve Elmore

1:00 pm through 2:00 pm

In Search of Nampeyo presents new information on Nampeyo’s early life as a Hopi potter in the 19th century. Working with the British trader Thomas Keam, she single-handedly saved Pueblo pottery from obscurity and created a new art movement, the Sikyatki Revival, by re-interpreting designs from the past. Mr. Elmore’s discovery of Nampeyo’s early ceramics in the Keam collection in the Peabody Museum at Harvard is presented, as well as information that strongly suggests Nampeyo was an early American modernist. Signed copies of Mr. Elmore’s book In Search of Nampeyo: The Early Years, 1856 – 1942 will be available.

Program free with Museum admission.
