Museum Exhibits

This Zia Sun Symbol exhibit grew out of the Counter-Narrative “Zia Symbol: Iconography and Appropriation” panel discussion on June 20, 2018.  The resources from the "Zia Symbol: Iconography & Appropriation" lecture were used by the Museum team when writing and designing “Ours: the Zia Sun” Exhibition, which opened February 20, 2019 and showed until October 20, 2019.
