Acoma Collection Review: Interviews with participants of the Acoma Collection Review at the Indian Arts Research Center at SAR. This spring, SAR and Acoma Pueblo will complete the six-year process of reviewing the IARC’s Acoma collection. The past six years have been spent carefully reviewing 585 objects in the Acoma collection, correcting inaccuracies, adding appropriate information, and working with the Pueblo to preserve the cultural history of the collection through documentation.
