CANCELED Native American Art: Tradition and Transformation with Stephanie Chill – Friends of Decorative Arts Lecture Series

This talk will explore how modern and contemporary Native American artists transform traditional techniques and designs to reflect the world around them. It will focus upon works in the MFA’s permanent collections, including the lustrous polished black pottery of Maria Martinez of the San Ildefonso Pueblo, and the massive wooden carving by Calvin Hunt, a descendant of the Kwakwaka’wakw and Nuu-chah-nulth- nations. The talk will also explore hidden gems such as Broke Care Landscape by Diego Romero, of the Cochiti Pueblo. Join us for this special lecture (as well as cookies and coffee) in our Bayview Room.

  • Cost: $10, plus MFA admission; $10 for MFA members; and free for MFA Friends of Decorative Arts members.
  • Doors for the lecture open at 1:45 pm. Early attendees are invited to view the galleries.
