The 66 MILE RADIUS project, sponsored by The University of New Mexico Center for Regional Studies, includes a series of collaborations at Tamarind with three New Mexico artists, Nina Elder, Judy Tuwaletstiwa, and Tom Miller, who all live and work within a 66-mile radius, and each representing a unique response to New Mexico history, landscape, and culture. Emmy® Award winning documentarian Melinda Frame produced three videos highlighting the experience for each artist.

During her Tamarind residency Judy Tuwaletstiwa, Galisteo, New Mexico, drew upon her innovative handling of glass and textiles, exploring ideas of printing on alternative surfaces. Hr large-scale work is informed by the history of the atomic bomb, the Trinity site, and the intersection of ancient and modern cultures. A celebrated artist with a long career of artist residencies, exhibitions, and collections to her name, her work is the subject of a major monograph recently published by Radius Books of Santa Fe.
