NY Times on Alumna's NOMA Exhibit

— by on July 26th, 2010

Another update on a recent blog post: Earlier this week we published an item about the work that Cristin J. Nunez, Class of 2005, had done on an exhibition that she co-curated at the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA). The exhibition, which opened on Saturday (July 24), is titled “Ancestor and Descendants: Ancient Southwestern America at the Dawn of the Twentieth Century.” In that post, we noted a mention in the July 16 edition of the New York Times.

The exhibition got much greater attention in Friday’s edition of the Times when the Antiques column had an in-depth review of the show, including quotes from the catalog that Cristin co-authored with Paul J. Tarver. The show is significant, since it includes rarely seen material from Tulane University’s George Hubbard Pepper Native American Archive.
