Contemporary Pueblo painter Mateo Romero '89 was born and raised in Berkeley, California. Although his cultural background is urban, his experience encompasses much of the Rio Grande Pueblo world as well through his father, Santiago Romero, and his connection to their Southern Keresan Cochiti people. Romero attended Dartmouth and studied there with acclaimed artists Ben Frank Moss and Varujan Boghosian. He later received an MFA in printmaking from the University of New Mexico. He is an award-winning artist who has exhibited internationally in Canada and the United States. He is currently a Dubin Fellow in painting at the School of American Research in Santa Fe, NM. He paints in his studio in Santa Fe and lives in Pojoaque Pueblo with his wife, Melissa, and their children, Erik, Povi, and Rain.

Medill Harvey '90 is associate curator of American decorative arts and manager of the Henry R. Luce Center for the Study of American Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She oversees the museum’s collections of American silver, jewelry, and other metalwork, as well as mid-nineteenth-century furniture. Harvey joined the staff of the Met’s American wing to direct research for the exhibition Art and the Empire City (2000). She is co-author of Early American Silver in the Metropolitan Museum of Art (2013) and a contributing author to American Silver in the Art Institute of Chicago (2016). She contributed to the Met’s 2009 and 2011 reinstallations of the American silver and jewelry collections and the exhibition Silversmiths to the Nation (2007). She is currently organizing an exhibition with an accompanying catalogue titled Collecting Inspiration: Edward C. Moore at Tiffany & Co. and is a co-author and consulting curator for Modern Gothic: The Inventive Furniture of Kimbel and Cabus, 1863-82, an exhibition and catalogue produced by the Brooklyn Museum. Medill graduated summa cum laude from Dartmouth College with a BA in art history, graduated with distinction from the Works of Art Course at Sotheby’s Educational Studies in London, and was awarded a master’s degree with honors in decorative art history by the Cooper Hewitt Museum / Parsons.
