We discovered the Poeh Cultural Center by accident when we went to visit Roxanne Swentzell's adjacent Tower Gallery--and were so glad we did. The permanent exhibit in the Poeh Museum offers a history of the Tewa people from their perspective--informative and moving, brought to life with sculptures by Roxanne Swentzell and murals by Marcellus Medina. The museum also features changing... 更多
As a visiting Curator from Canada I was told to visit this place after a private tour of the Wainwright...very much worth the trip to see traditional culture inspiring new young artists. Love the classic diorama style inside and the classic village look outside.
Wow! What a great blending of old and new - the interpretive centre gives the story of the local culture and history while the art gallery shows the modern collective creativity. While we were there a young artist`s work was on display - showed a transition from graffiti to tribal inspired mixed media - with a pow Wow!!
The Poeh Center offers a look into art and artists mainly from New Mexico’s six Tewa-speaking pueblos. They curate, display and preserve traditional and contemporary art and cultural work in both a permanent collection and photo archive of the Pojoaque pueblo life and history. The center has a wonderful six-room journey taking the visitor from the beginning through current day... 更多
Located adjacent to the Poeh Cultural Center and Museum and the Roxanne Swentzell Tower Gallery is a Stone Studio identified with a "Stone Gallery" sign over the doorway. Some pieces can be seen outside in the courtyard with others located around the museum/gallery/studio complex. This is an obvious and important element to a visit to this place.
We stopped by the museum on a whim while driving north from Santa Fe toward Espanola. It was an amazingly gorgeous day and the blue skies really accented the adobe brown structure. Take time to explore the exterior before going inside to admire the sculptures, some of which are still in progress. There is also an art gallery next door... 更多
I have been driving past the Poeh cultural museum for years, meaning to go and check it out. Well finally I went today and am wondering "why did I wait so long"!!! I was with my 6 month old son in a carrier (who to be honest slept through most of the museum) - but we loved it and will... 更多
This was our first time at the Poeh Museum. We stopped in one rainy afternoon on our way from Taos to Santa Fe and we are so glad we did! We were tired after travelling but after our visit to Poeh we felt revived. There is an amazing permanent exhibit about the history of pueblo people, told in images sounds... 更多
This museum is very close to Buffalo Thunder Resort but about 15 miles from Santa Fe on the road to Los Alamos. Built in 2005 with a wide variety of exhibits - including textiles and scenes with Roxanne Swentzel sculptures and murals by Marcellus Medina. Nice gift selection and very helpful staff. Next door to Roxanne Swentzel's gallery. Local market... 更多
Due to its location, just off 84/285 many people may miss this excellent museum as they rush to leave or arrive in Santa Fe. You should allocate some time and stop, it is well worth it.
