Pat Pruitt: Jewelry and Metalwork

The Heard Museum will present an exhibition of Pat Pruitt’s jewelry and metalwork. Pruitt’s style is completely unique and unexpected – even when creating “traditional” pieces like bolo ties or concho belts. Pruitt is known for pushing the boundaries of wearable art, and has attracted national attention for his arresting visual style. This original exhibition shown only at the Heard Museum will feature a range of innovative works made throughout Pruitt’s career.
