Selections from the American Indian Collection


The Museum's collection of Native American art began with a gift from Nancy, Lady Astor; the works of art date from the 1880's to the early 1900's. Over time, the collection has grown through gifts and now includes ceramics, baskets and textiles from indigenous cultures of the southwestern United States; beadwork of the Woodlands and Plains, as well as the Northwest Coast including Alaska. This growing collection looks to the future by including contemporary Native American artists such as Jaune Quick-to-See-Smith, Kay WalkingStick and Barbara Gonzales.
