Indian Pueblo Cultural Center

The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center (IPCC) seeks K-12 Native youth to participate in its 43rd annual Native American Student Art Show, entitled “Who is Your Superhero?” The curated and juried show will be on display October 29, 2022 through January 3, 2023, in the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center Artist Circle Gallery. There will also be an opening reception Sunday, October 29, from 1-3 p.m.

The event was established in 1979 to encourage creativity among Native youth, and to help them recognize that the future preservation and evolution of Native culture lies within them, according Indian Pueblo Cultural Center Head Curator Paula Mirabal.

“Our youth have gone through a couple challenging years and I want to celebrate them by offering ways to express themselves through art,” Mirabal said. “With all the great Native imagery, films, and empowering stories coming out, our youth have so much positive energy to draw from.

“Through this exhibition, I hope to see through their eyes and hearts who their superheroes are in their lives, be it their parents, grandparents, friends, pets, or nature. I look forward to all their amazing submissions.”

Submissions can come from multiple mediums, such as paintings, sculpture, drawing, and mixed media. Deadline to submit art is October 15, 2022. Winning artists will receive a prize; additionally, participants can make their works available for sale, receiving 100% of the proceeds.
