Webinar series on Indigenous museum collections
2022 marks the centennial of the IARC’s collection of Native Southwest art and history. This year’s Speaker Series, One Hundred Years Later: The Indian Arts Research Center and the Role of Collections in the Twenty-First Century, seeks to explore the role of collections, then and now, and the responsibility and accountability of collecting institutions to the communities they serve.
