Choices and Change: American Indian Artists in the Southwest

Change is an underlying premise of American Indian art that is often overlooked. In this exhibition, art was clearly shown to be the bridge between a past rich in tradition and a dynamic, ever-changing current and future culture. Visitors viewed jewelry, sculpture, pottery and paintings from the Heard Museum’s collection that exemplify the innovations and the vast differences in the artists’ personal creations. Also in the main gallery, a restored mural by the late Charles Loloma (Hopi) was on display.
