Epcot World Showcase does a fantastic job of brining authentic cultural experiences to guests. This summer a brand new exhibition called “Creating Tradition: Innovation and Change in American Indian Art” will be coming to the American Heritage Gallery at The American Adventure.
Featured artists will include 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.
Just like the other exhibits we’ve seen at American Heritage Gallery, “Creating Tradition: Innovation and Change in American Indian Art” will feature interactive elements where some of the artists will share, in their own words, inspirations behind their works and their creative process.
This new exhibit is made possible through the collaboration of the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture (MIAC) in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) in Washington, D.C.
The American Adventure isn’t the only country getting an updated exhibit. Updates to the art gallery in Mexico happened last fall and more exciting work is underway to refresh the gallery in Norway.
