The exhibit features of women sculpted by 7 American Indian Artists.Most of the ten works on view will be in the museum's outdoor Roland Sculpture Garden.

Estella Loretto travels to Rome for the Canonization of Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha
Estella Loretto in her garden with Blessed Kateri in 2012.
Estella Loretto will be traveling to Rome in October with Santa Fe’s Archbishop Michael J. Sheehan of Saint Francis Basilica for the canonization of Kateri Tekakwitha, the first Native American to achieve sainthood.
Archbishop Sheehan will be leading a pilgrimage to Rome to attend the canonization of Kateri which includes devotional visits to many important Catholic shrines in the area.
Estella will participate in the celebration in Rome which includes a special Canonization Mass lead by Pope Benedict at St. Peter’s Basilica on Sunday, October 21st, 2012.
Estella was commissioned by Most Rev. Michael J. Sheehan to create a monumental bronze statue of Blessed Kateri, which has welcomed visitors at the entrance to Saint Francis Cathedral in Santa Fe, NM, since 2003.
“...as patron of ecology and the environment, Kateri teaches us how to love and respect the created world and care for it.” –Fr. Thomas Rosica, C.S.B., Canada
Almost a decade ago, Arch Bishop Michael Sheehan of Saint Francis Basilica in Santa Fe, New Mexico, approached Estella Loretto to create a statue of Kateri Tekakwitha. In 2003, Blessed Kateri, a larger-than-life-size figure of the first Native American Catholic to be considered for sainthood, was unveiled at the Basilica where she stands today, welcoming visitors to the famous cathedral.
It was announced by the Pope in 2011 that Kateri Tekakwitha will be canonized in October 2012. Estella will be traveling to Rome to attend the event.
