About the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA)
Located in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the IAIA is the only four-year degree fine arts institution in the nation devoted to contemporary Native American arts. The mission of IAIA is: “To empower creativity and leadership in Native Arts and cultures through higher education, lifelong learning and outreach.” IAIA also operates the Center for Lifelong Education and the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts in Santa Fe.
Nativo Lodge has partnered with IAIA to feature a number of emerging and rising contemporary Native American artists at our hotel. Several Native American contemporary artists (Heidi Brandow, Nani Chacon, Rhett Lynch, Ehren Kee Natay, Jaque Fragua, Randy Barton, Michelle Lowden and Rose B. Simpson) transformed our guest rooms into works of art at Nativo Lodge. Each featured artist has received local and national attention from the media, and has gone through a juried submission process to showcase their art at Nativo Lodge.
We believe the preservation of our unique New Mexican culture is important for present and future generations. We hope to share New Mexico's inspiring traditions to continue to enchant new visitors and old friends. Thank you for helping our initiatives.
