New Mexico artists Harrison Begay (Dine), Fred Kabotie (Hopi), and Pablita Velarde (Tewa) were all students of Dorothy Dunn, an art teacher and patron at the Santa Fe Indian School. The "Studio Style" they developed paved the way for the diverse array of Native artists who followed. In some cases these included their own children, like Michael Kabotie and Helen Hardin (Velarde's daughter), who responded to their times while continuing to transmit cultural inheritance. Jaune Quick-To-See Smith (Cree/Shoshone/Salish) and Fritz Scholder (Luiseño), both born outside of New Mexico but with deep ties to the state, became internationally known for cutting-edge imagery and techniques. "Spirit of Creation" includes works by artists from across North America, including Diego Romero (Cochiti), T.C. Cannon (Kiowa), Marie Watt (Seneca), John Nieto (Mescalero Apache), and Simon Tookoome (Inuit).
