The response of European collectors to the art of the indigenous people of the New World encouraged Native American artists to use more recognizably ‘European’ forms and materials in their work while still producing items that tourists would find suitably ‘Indian.’ This lecture will explore the bead and quillwork of the North Atlantic coast, the pottery production of the Southwest, and the carving and weavings of the Northwest coast.

Speaker: Johanna Minich
