Adopt an Animal from 'Awa Tsireh'

Adopt an Animal from Awa Tsireh

Support the upcoming exhibition Awa Tsireh: A Pueblo Painter and Metalsmith, opening Nov. 3, by adopting one of the “animals” featured in the exhibition. Awa Tsireh’s depictions of animals exude charm and whimsy, and for the run of the exhibition, one of these critters can be yours! We promise a carefree experience as curator Diana Pardue will take care of your adopted pet in its new home at the Heard. We just ask that you come and visit your furbaby often, and bring friends and family, too.
