Hearts of Our People: Native Women Artists

Exhibition:
Sunday, June 2Sunday, August 18

Hearts of Our People: Native Women Artists, presented by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community, is now open at Mia! 

"The role of women art-makers in Native communities has gone widely ignored. Now a bold museum show, by and for these women, is shining a light on 1,000 years of their art." -The New York Times

Women have long been the creative force behind Native art. Presented in close cooperation with top Native women artists and Native-art scholars, this first major exhibition of artwork by Native women honors the achievements of over 115 artists from the United States and Canada spanning over 1,000 years. Their triumphs—from pottery, textiles, and painting, to photographs, videos, and a gleaming El Camino—show astonishing innovation and technical mastery.
