Project leader Dr. Emily Fioccoprile uses a RTI Reflectance Transformation Imaging to record a flat petroglyph panel. They take many photos of the same part of the panel, moving the flash so that it illuminates the petroglyphs from different angles. They use a meter stick to aim the flash at the same spot in each photo. The meter stick never touches the petroglyphs. The exhibit presents a case study of work done by Dr. Emily Fioccoprile, Dr. Matt Peeples, including colleagues at Arizona State University's Deer Valley Petroglyph Preserve in north Phoenix. Support for this exhibit was provided by the Friends of Pueblo Grande Museum and the Center for Archaeology and Society in the School of Human Evolution and Social Change at Arizona State University.

The students painted rocks and learned about meaningful O'Odham symbols, wove beautiful designs with basket artist Yolanda Elias, planted a school garden with artist Jeffrey Lazos Ferns, etched designs onto shells and created elaborate clay pots with artist Jacob Butler, and designed exquisite gourds with artist Arturo J. Ramirez. The workshop series led by the artists focused on Ancestral O'Odham arts and culture. ​Upon completing the artworks, a core of dedicated 6 th graders from Mercury Mine Elementary School set to work on designing an exhibition about the project. The student curators selected the artworks to be featured in the show, interviewed their peers to write personal labels, selected photos, wrote a title and introductory text, and installed the display. The exhibit is on display at Pueblo Grande Museum until July 23, 2022. No

The exhibit explores the layers, complications, and duality of juxtaposing contemporary O'Odham with traditional narratives and ancestral ties to the Phoenix basin and throughout the Sonoran Desert. This exhibit was generously funded by the Friends of Pueblo Grande Museum. Thomas 'Breeze' Marcus has been spray-painting large-scale murals throughout the City of Phoenix for nearly three decades. He is also a studio painter and has done work for various museum collections and exhibits throughout the country. Marcus' art is directly inspired by graffiti, public art, contemporary Native issues, and his Akimel and Tohono O'Odham heritage. By finding and creating parallels in his artwork, Marcus carries on a long lineage of creative and innovative history in the Phoenix area. When Rez Dogs Howl will be on display at Pueblo Grande Museum from July 7, 2022 to May 14, 2023. The public is invited to attend a free opening exhibit reception from 6 – 8 p.m. on Thursday, July 7 at Pueblo Grande Museum . No
