Hearts of Our People: Native Women Artists

Oct 07, 2020 - Jan 03, 2021

Women have long been the creative force behind Native art. Presented in close cooperation with top Native women artists and scholars, Hearts of our People is the first major exhibition of artwork by Native women of the past and present, honoring the achievements of over 100 artists from the United States and Canada spanning over 1,000 years. Their triumphs—from pottery, textiles, and painting, to photographic portraits, —show astonishing innovation and technical mastery. Philbrook is the final stop for this groundbreaking exhibition. Member Preview dates start September 26 through October 4.

Organized by the Minneapolis Institute of Art, with contributions from Philbrook Museum of Art
