Drawn from the celebrated American Indian art collection of Charles and Valerie Diker, Indigenous Beauty: Masterworks of American Indian Art from the Diker Collection showcases approximately 120 masterworks, including fine examples of basketry, pottery, sculpture, ivories, kachina dolls, regalia, and pictographic arts from tribes across the North American continent. The exhibition provides rare access to many exquisite works from one of the most comprehensive and diverse collections of American Indian art in private hands.
Indigenous Beauty is organized by the American Federation of Arts. This exhibition was made possible by the generosity of an anonymous donor, the JFM Foundation, and Mrs. Donald M. Cox.
Look for a touch board at the start of the exhibition that allows you to feel several different materials American Indian artists frequently used and still use today.
Visit the museum’s Research Library to learn more about American Indian art. The Library offers public hours on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
