YOU ARE WHAT YOU WEAR: NATIVE AMERICAN BEADED APPAREL

Curator Emily Hanna discusses Native American traditions of adorning garments with beads and other decorative elements. A special focus of the talk is four beautiful beaded dresses on loan from the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian.

This program is for people who want to learn more about art in an informative and interactive setting. These programs, with the exception of June, are held on the first Thursday of each month, January through October. Coffee and light refreshments are available. Tours are led by curators or guest lecturers, and attendees are encouraged to ask questions, share thoughts and ideas, and actively participate in the learning process.
