Part One: Native American Art
We’ll hear the story of a local art collector whose post-retirement travels allowed him to amass a large collection of work by Native American artists. He has put together a museum-quality collection of natives’ art of the New World (Alaska to Guatemala). His collection is now on display at the Mint Museum of Art. We’ll talk to him about the histories of some of these pieces themselves.
