Generations of Prayer, Song and Dance 
The works of Larry Phillips Sr., - Ohkay Owingeh Artist 
This powerful exhibition showcases the career of Ohkay Owingeh photographer and traditional artist Larry Phillips, Sr. One of the first Native artists to practice photography, Phillips offers a compelling portrait of the Ohkay Owingeh way of life, giving vivid representation to scenes of prayer, song and dance passed down through generations. His images of Ohkay Owingeh dancers tell a story of the living culture of his People, the role of prayer in Pueblo life and how the beat of the drum connects them to the earth and all living things.


Spanning Phillips’ career as an artist, the exhibition documents his early years developing film in the Museum of International Folk Art’s darkroom and his nearly four decades as a traditional artist making ceremonial objects such as headdresses, lightning sticks and rattles. Now as Lieutenant Governor of Ohkay Owingeh, he balances his creative pursuits with responsibilities to his people. Including photographs, paintings and ceremonial objects, the exhibition shows Phillips’ passion for the Ohkay Owingeh way of life and offers a brilliant look at this unique living culture.
