The Heard Museum believes that nothing can fully replace an in-person visit to a museum, to see and experience art, other works of Indigenous creation, and exhibitions up close and personal. However due to time, budget, distance and yes, social distancing the Heard Museum is not always accessible to the visiting public.
The Heard Museum team has pulled together some resources for you to help engage with American Indian art and culture in the comfort of your own home and on your schedule. We will be updating this content weekly for you to access some our most popular videos, articles and books online.
These are some of our most popular YouTube videos. Visit our channel for more videos from insider looks at our collections to our Hoop Dance Contest and artist interviews.
