SANTA FE, NM
George Rivera is many things; art and cultural teacher, student of painting and sculptural design and even Governor of the Pueblo of Pojoaque in northern New Mexico, his hometown and Native heritage. Rivera’s impact reaches even further with his talents as a bronze sculptor, depicting Pueblo life and other tribal customs.
Rivera mainly focuses on large scale commissions such as a recent piece made for the city of Santa Fe titled, Catua and Umtua. It depicts two life size bronze figures that were runners serving as messengers during the Pueblo Revolt of 1680.

Never a quiet time for WFT
The dust never settles around the Washington Football Team.
Hail and Farewell
The Washington Football Team did not go gently into the offseason.
To Do List
Hire GM: This is more coach Ron Rivera’s decision than owner Dan Snyder’s since the former has control on football matters. Yet, the general manager is usually the closest person to the owner so it’s not easily Rivera’s decision.
