Fralin curator of the Indigenous Arts of the Americas Adriana Greci Green presents the groundbreaking exhibition Hearts of Our People: Native Women Artists (on view at the Smithsonian's Renwick Gallery February 21- May 17, 2020), the first to recognize the significant artistic achievements of Indigenous women across North America from the ancient past to the present. A member of the exhibition's Advisory Board, Greci Green will discuss the unique collaborative curatorial process that sustained the development of the exhibition and how Legacy, Relationships, and Power emerged as the core themes to frame the creative output of Native women artists. Highlights of the exhibition, which features textiles, baskets, beadwork, pottery, painting, sculpture, photography, video, and installation art, will include the work of artists who have visited the Fralin Museum as Mellon Indigenous Art Fellows. Lecture is free and open to the public.
