Pots and Patterns of Culture: The Hohokum, the Anasazi, the Mimbres, and The Casa Grandes

June 9, 2015 by

The library’s current exhibit celebrates the four Pre-Columbian cultures in the American Southwest that contributed concepts of social organization which became the egalitarian Pueblo culture of today. It is an amazing story.

Pottery, unlike architectural sites or abstract ideas, is portable and concrete, and the Archives and Special Collections is proud to possess a few pieces of ancient Southwest pieces. They represent the four ancient cultures that flourished then ended in the evolution of Pueblo society. A small sample of 20th century Pueblo artwork is also included in the exhibit, especially pottery that uses the traditional motifs of the ancient cultures.

The exhibit will be on display for the months of June and July in the library’s Hartman Gallery on the 2nd floor.

This pitcher and small cup, both with white & black geometric designs, is from the Anasazi of the Colorado Plateau, circa 950-1250 CE.
