After a few days in New Mexico, it's good to be reminded that Native American art is more than just pottery, blankets, and kachina dolls. This museum is the place for it: The largest assemblage of contemporary native art in the country, located right in the heart of downtown Santa Fe. Representing hundreds of tribes, the 7,500-item collection includes photographs, paintings, prints, and much more. Many of the works embody the struggle to bridge the old and new, the traditional and the modern, such as David Sloan's silkscreened images of endangered species and their Navajo names over lithographed reproductions of old 1970s Navajo Times newspaper ads. Don't miss the outdoor sculpture garden, featuring works by Allan Houser.
