NORA NARANJO MORSE, Espanola, New Mexico

Nora Naranjo Morse is a sculptor, writer, and producer of video films that look at the continuing social changes within Pueblo Indian culture. An artist best known for her work with clay and organic materials, she has been trained in the Pueblo clay work tradition of the Southwest. Her installation exhibits and large-scale public art speak to environmental, cultural, and social practice issues. Beyond New Mexico, her work can be seen at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian, Washington, D.C. She is the recipient of an honorary degree from Skidmore College and a 2014 Native Arts and Cultures Foundation Artist fellowship.
