We are excited to welcome you back to the Center of Southwest Studies!
PIVOT, curated by Duane Koyawena (Hopi) and Landis Bahe (Dine), features original works on a unique canvas. The show includes over 114 skateboard decks by Native American/Indigenous artists and provides insight into the contemporary Native art landscape while acknowledging the traditional cultures that help shape the identities of the artists who create the works.
Inspired by the PIVOT Skateboard Deck Art exhibit now on display at the Center of Southwest Studies, museum intern, Elise Lilburn (Studio Art ’21), conceived of the idea to create a student PIVOT exhibition.
The Center is proud to offer academic or paid internships to all FLC majors! Learn more about this opportunity.
We are excited to announce that the Center was awarded a CH CARES Humanities Relief Grant! In addition to the $6000 award, our Curator Liz Quinn MacMillan helped the Center win an additional $2500 from the social media challenge!
The Center of Southwest Studies has entered into a license agreement with Pendleton Woolen Mills to feature two textiles from The Durango Collection® as part of their Preservation Series.
Let us be your Gateway to the Southwest!
