Authors Lois Rudnick and Jonathan Warm Day Coming talk about their book Eva Mirabal: Three Generations of Tradition and Modernity at Taos Pueblo.
Throughout her lifetime, Eva Mirabal’s (Eah-Ha-Wa, Fast Growing Corn, 1920–1968) paintings and murals received national acclaim. After her death in 1968, Eva’s teenage sons discovered a treasure trove containing her life story. In a huge pine box that she had nailed shut, she placed scores of her drawings, family photographs, diary entries, newspaper clippings, and hundreds of letters that she received from curators, gallery owners, friends, and teachers over the years. Drawing on this rich and invaluable archive and interviews with family members, Rudnick tells the story of Eva’s brilliant but brief and impactful career as a Taos Pueblo artist, along with the story of the artistic legacy carried on by her son Jonathan Warm Day Coming.
