Event description: Learn about the Native American women who transformed everyday objects with personal expressions of artistic flair. See how natural resources were combined with trade goods to produce extraordinary works of art during the dramatic cultural and economic changes at the turn of the last century. Their works, all from the Stamford Museum & Nature Center's permanent collection, are being paired in this exhibition with the iconic photographs of Edward S. Curtis, who captured the last vestiges of traditional Native American culture in the western United States. His mission was to safeguard a sacred legacy by preserving traditional culture, personal histories, and beliefs through photographs. This exhibition offers an opportunity to experience the Native American message of beauty, heart, and spirit. September 21-December 3, 2013.
