Details

Women have long been the creative force behind Native American art. The critically acclaimed exhibition Hearts of Our People: Native Women Artists, on view at the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery, explores the artistic achievements of Native women and establishes their rightful place in the art world. Join artists Kelly Church (Ottawa/Pottawatomi), Anita Fields (Osage), Carla Hemlock (Kanienkeháka), and Jolene Rickard (Tuscarora) for a conversation about their work and the role of women as artists in Native communities.

Exhibition curators Jill Ahlberg Yohe, associate curator of Native American Art at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and Teri Greeves, an independent curator and member of the Kiowa Nation, moderate a panel discussion following the artists’ talks. The symposium is a collaboration of the National Museum of the American Indian and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

Please note this symposium takes place at the National Museum of the American Indian, located at 4th Street and Independence Avenue, SW, Washington, DC.
Hearts of Our People: Native Women Artists is organized by the Minneapolis Institute of Art. The exhibition has been made possible in part by a major grant from the Henry Luce Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the Human Endeavor.

The presentation at the Renwick Gallery is organized in collaboration with the National Museum of the American Indian. Generous support has been provided by the James F. Dicke Family Endowment, Chris G. Harris, the Wolf Kahn and Emily Mason Foundation, Jacqueline B. Mars, the Provost of the Smithsonian, the Share Fund, the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative, and the WEM Foundation.
