December 10, 2002-- The University of Virginia Art Museum will close for the holidays Dec. 23 through Jan. 11. The museum will reopen on Saturday, Jan. 11, featuring "Honoring the Legacy of Lewis and Clark: Native American Art and the American West." The show features works from the permanent collection including beaded garments from the Plains and Prairie peoples and basketry utilizing local fibers crafted by peoples living on the plateaus. The objects on display show that the American Indians encountered by Lewis and Clark maintained their traditional styles and methods of production nearly 100 years later, incorporating native and trade materials. The exhibit also includes prints showing images of the land and people by George Catlin and Karl Bodmer on loan from the A.G. Edwards Corporate Collection.
