Over at Epcot, a brand new art exhibit has debuted at the American Heritage Gallery, “Creating Tradition: Innovation and Change in American Indian Art.” The exhibit displays 89 pieces on display to represent 40 different American Indian tribes from 7 geographic regions across the United States.
Some of the highlights from the American Indian Art collection include an “Ancient Resonance” dress by designer Loren Aragon from Acoma Pueblo, a Chilkat blanket from Alaska dating to the 1890s complements “Raven and the Box of Daylight,” a 2017 glass sculpture by Preston Singletary (Tlingit), and a Pokagon Potawatomi black ash hamper basket made in the early 1900s.
Take a look inside the dedication ceremony of the new art exhibit.
The new American Indian Art exhibit is located in the American Pavilion inside the World Showcase.
Explore the artistry of American Indian communities—and learn about traditional Native influences.
“Creating Tradition: Innovation and Change in American Indian Art” showcases authentic, historical Native artifacts alongside contemporary works of American Indian art—demonstrating examples of cultural traditions which have been handed down through generations.
Native communities from 7 geographic regions across the United States are included in the gallery. Their art represents the richness, depth and diversity of Native cultures past and present. Among the featured artists with works on display are fashion designer Loren Aragon (Acoma Pueblo), noted doll-maker Glenda McKay (Ingalik-Athabascan) and Juanita Growing Thunder (Assiniboine Sioux) from the Growing Thunder family of Montana.
