About the cover: Western New Mexico University Museum is the home of the NAN Ranch Collection — the largest and most complete collection of Mimbres materials in existence from a single prehistoric Mimbres site, and the largest and most comprehensive permanent educational exhibition of Mimbres pottery and artifacts in the world. The Mimbres heritage in clay, along with modern clay artistry, will be celebrated in Silver City's second annual clay festival this month and early August.
