“This will be a wonderful event for the youth of our community,” said Daniel McCoy, the Poeh’s Entrepreneurship Manager and organizer. “Creating art, whatever medium it may be, is an activity that can enhance one’s life for the better. I encourage everyone to bring their creations to the Poeh.” 

Artwork can be delivered to the Poeh Cultural Center Monday-Friday, from 10 am – 5 pm, before the exhibit or during the opening reception.  All visual/written art, including painting, drawing, photography, digital art, and poetry, is welcome. 3D art must be ready to hang. Schools and youth programs are encouraged to participate. Artwork can be delivered by a teacher or by class field trip. Families are encouraged to attend the exhibit opening to support students and their creative expression.

Governor Jacob Viarrial Day 2023

June 28, 2023 @ 10:00 am 4:00 pm

The Poeh Cultural Center invites you to join us on June 28, 2023, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm to celebrate Jake Viarrial Day (1946-2004). Viarrial served two terms as the Governor of Pojoaque and was a vocal advocate for Pueblo’s legal rights and sovereignty. His assertion of Pueblo sovereignty garnered national attention in 1995 when he challenged the state of New Mexico’s decision to force the Pueblo of Pojoaque to close its casino. Viarrial threatened to install tollbooths along U.S. 84-285 to compensate for lost revenue if the state closed the casino.
Come to the Poeh Cultural Center to celebrate this event with stories, demos, food, and dance. For more information, contact Macario Gutierrez at 505.455.5043 or magutierrez@pojoaque.org.
