Murals of the Americas

Through December 30, 2010

Storied Walls: Murals of the Americas explores the spectacular wall paintings from the Hopi village kivas of Awatovi in Arizona; the Maya murals of San Bartolo and Bonampak in Guatemala and Mexico, respectively; and the Moche huacas of northern Peru. The artists and artisans who adorned these walls left stunning visual accounts of some of the most significant and enduring stories of their times—stories that insist upon being read, even now, centuries after their creation.

The original art works remain for the most part in situ. Storied Walls uses the photographs and drawings of archaeologists, models, and fragments of original murals to examine the meanings and social uses of murals within the Pueblo, Maya, and Moche cultures; the history of their discoveries and investigations by affiliates of the Peabody Museum and others; and ongoing efforts to preserve and restore these fragile painted surfaces
