Mateo Romero

August 27, 2011, through January 22, 2012
The Dartmouth Pow-wow Suite



Temporary Exhibitions, Harrington Gallery


In spring 2009, the Hood Museum of Art commissioned Mateo Romero, Class of 1989, to paint a series of ten portraits of current Native American Dartmouth students as they danced at the college’s annual Pow-Wow. He photographed his subjects in May of that year and completed the almost life-sized portraits in 2010, using his signature technique of overpainting the photographic prints.

The exhibition was organized by the Hood Museum of Art and generously supported by Mary Alice Kean Raynolds and David R. W. Raynolds, Class of 1949, Susan Ferris, the William B. Jaffe and Evelyn A. Hall Fund, and the Eleanor Smith Fund. A multimedia component was made possible by a gift from Stephen A. Lister, Class of 1963.
