Michael Naranjo Touching Beauty Exhibit
On display through Jan 15, 2025 at the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs
On display in the Bataan Building Atrium Gallery: Touching Beauty Now, sculpture by Santa Clara Pueblo’s Michael Naranjo, celebrated the world over for his bronze and stone forms suspended in fluid, graceful movement. In 1968, Naranjo lost his sight after a combat injury in Vietnam, and feared he would never create art again. He did, in fact, learn to sculpt blind, a testament to the artist’s unstoppable passion for art, beauty, and his roots in an artistic family. The Bataan Building is located at 400 Don Gaspar Ave, .Santa Fe and is open from 8-5 pm. Monday through Friday.
