School for Advanced Research
Tours of the collections are offered weekly on Fridays at 2 pm.
Founded in 1907, Santa Fe’s School for Advanced Research (SAR) is one of North America’s preeminent independent institutes for the study of anthropology, related social sciences, and humanities. Through scholar residency and artist fellowship programs, public programs, and SAR Press, SAR advances intellectual inquiry in order to better understand humankind.
SAR is home to the Indian Arts Research Center (IARC) and one of the nation’s most important Southwest Native American art research collections. The IARC stewards over 12,000 works that span from the sixth century to the present.
