Early Days: Indigenous Art from the McMichael is the first survey of Canadian Indigenous art to be presented internationally, and the Heard Museum is its first stop in the United States, after its original presentation at the renowned McMichael Canadian Art Collection.
On view at the Heard Museum from September to December 2023, Early Days showcases the diversity and vitality of Indigenous art in Canada, from quillwork dating back to the 1700s, through some of Canada’s most highly-regarded artists working today, including Kent Monkman, Meryl McMaster, and Rebecca Belmore. Early Days includes 18th century regalia, Northwest Coast masks and rattles, exquisite frontlets and contemporary art from coast-to-coast-to-coast.
After viewing the exhibition and placing initial bids at the Silent Auction, guests will gather in the Freeport McMoRan Plaza to enjoy dinner and pay tribute to the evening’s honorees.
