Opening: Armond Lara | Flying Blue Buffalo Installation
August 17 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm| Free
Armond Lara collaborates with form & concept on a monumental art installation that tells the centuries-long story of enslaved Native American children. The Santa Fe artist will send 75 hand-painted, cast resin Flying Blue Buffalo sculptures soaring through the gallery’s atrium. Inspired by his own family history, Lara dreamed up the winged buffalo as a new symbol of Native survival and resilience. Each sculpture in the suspended flock will be labeled with the name of an abducted child. The installation debuts at a special reception on Friday, August 17, 5-7 pm, on the weekend of Santa Fe Indian Market.
