curator for the Institute for American Indian Arts Museum Indian people need to talk about their work and make work not only for them selves but for their own people Artwork shouldnt always be made for the tourists The art displayed in the IAIA Museums grandreopening exhibit Indian Art for Indian is full of political mes sages and spiritual meaning The two artists now featured at the museum are Bob Haozous a Chiricahua Apache and Marie Watt who is Seneca The Ameri can Indian art community con siders the work by both artists to be cutting edge Sanchez said I dont know if I could ever see
