MFA Member Preview: Color Riot! How Color Changed Navajo Textiles
Before it opens to the public, MFA members are invited to a special preview of our new exhibition, Color Riot! How Color Changed Navajo Textiles. Featuring over 80 vibrant weavings, Color Riot! celebrates the individualism and flair for experimentation that transformed Navajo textiles from the last quarter of the nineteenth century to today. This exhibition is organized by the Heard Museum (Phoenix, Arizona), which is devoted to collecting and studying Native American Arts of the Southwest. It was shaped by the Heard’s curatorial staff with the participation of three Navajo women under the auspices of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation: Ninabah Winton (Diné); Velma Kee Craig (Diné); and Natalia Miles (Diné/Akimel O’Otham/Apache).
For this event, we are continuing timed ticketing, and all visitors must reserve admission in advance to visit the museum, including MFA members.
