Exhibition Overview
For three generations, the Wiggins and Howe family have been leaving their creative mark on the Southwest. They are artists and explorers who experiment with inconventional materials and techniques, creating ceramics, paintings, pyroglyphs (drawings made from fireworks), and even taxidermy.

This exhibit will explore the multi-generational creativity of the Wiggins and Howes through an eclectic selection of art and archival materials. Highlighted amongst this dynasty of artists are members Bill and Walt Wiggins, Elaine Wiggins Howe, Kim Wiggins, Jeremy Howe, Miranda Howe and Logan Howe alongside other less well known members of the family. Regardless of artist or medium, when it comes to this family, curiosity reigns supreme, and visitors should expect the unexpected.
