On Wisconsin spotlighted the work of UW–Madison alumna Patricia Marroquin Norby in the Winter 2024 issue of the award-winning alumni magazine.

The feature, headlined “An Eye for Indigenous Art,” shares how Norby is bringing together Indigenous art and perspectives and amplifying often unheard voices as the inaugural associate curator of Native American art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a role she started in 2020.

Norby earned her master of fine arts degree from the School of Education’s Art Department in 2002, and is a 2023 Distinguished Alumni Award winner.

A current exhibition at the Met, “Grounded in Clay: The Spirit of Pueblo Pottery,” on view through June 2024, is the museum’s first exhibition that is entirely community curated, notes the article. Norby invited 60 members of Pueblo nations to select a collection of historical and contemporary pottery for the exhibition “that tells stories on Indigenous people’s terms.”
