Floral Journey: Native North American Beadwork

Floral Journey: Native North American Beadwork
at Autry National Center, Los Angeles
Mar 15, 2014 - Apr 26, 2015
Art and spirituality converge with trade and commerce in Floral Journey: Native North American Beadwork, a groundbreaking exhibition opening in March 2014. Through 250 unique objects and personal stories, the exhibition is the first of its kind to explore how beaded floral designs became a remarkable art form as well as a means of economic and cultural survival for the Native North American people.

Floral Journey presents moccasins, bags, dresses, hats, jackets, and other exquisite beaded and quilled items selected from fifteen cultural institutions, including the Autry's Southwest Museum of the American Indian Collection, and multiple private collections. Many of the objects will be displayed to the public for the first time.
