Happy New Year!
Please stay tuned to hear updates for Legacy Art 2014
Donation to Legacy Art Albuquerque XIII from Cybelle Codish
Legacy Art attendees will be able to bid on ten of internationally famed photographer Cybelle Codish’s photos contributed for the exhibition of the little-documented Grab Day. An annual tradition in the villages of the Laguna Pueblo, water and food items are thrown from a rooftop to people standing below. A community-wide prayer of abundance, thanks, and renewal, Grab Day exists at the intersection of traditional Native and contemporary Western cultures.
Cybelle along with two other photographers worked under the direction of filmmaker Billy Luther (Navajo/Hopi/Laguna Pueblo), whose documentary “Grab” follows families preparing for this important tradition. “Grab” was an official selection of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Below is one of Cybelle’s photos for Grab.
