This title explores the brilliant but brief life and accomplishments of Taos Pueblo Artist Eva Mirabal by author Lois P. Rudnick and, Mirabal's son, Jonathan Warm Day Coming.
Eva Mirabal (Eah-Ha-Wa, Fast Growing Corn, 1920–1968) studied for six years at the Dorothy Dunn Studio art program in Santa Fe. By the time she was twenty years old, Mirabal was exhibiting in museums and galleries across the country. Mirabal’s first exposure to art was through her father Pedro Mirabal who was a popular model, along with Eva’s father-in-law Geronimo Gomez, for members of the Taos Art Society and for modern artists who came to Taos as part of Mabel Dodge Luhan’s circle. After her death in 1968, Eva’s teenage sons discovered a treasure trove of her life story. Scores of her drawings, family photographs; diary entries; newspaper clippings; and hundreds of letters related to her life and work that she received from curators, gallery owners, friends, and teachers over the years.
