Hearts of Our People: Native Women Artists

The Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian American Art Museum (SAAM) presents Hearts of Our People, showcasing work by Native women artists. The exhibition was organized by Minneapolis Institute of Art Associate Curator of Native American Art Jill Ahlberg Yohe and Teri Greeves, an independent curator and member of the Kiowa Nation, with an advisory panel of Native women artists and Native and non-Native scholars. The Renwick is the third stop of a four-museum tour for the show, which initially opened at the Minneapolis Institute of Art in 2019, then travelled to the Frist Museum in Nashville, the Renwick at SAAM, and will complete its tour at the Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, OK. The online gallery opens with a video featuring a number of the artists in the show, discussing how the art they make expresses traditions handed down from their grandmothers and earlier. Visitors can also view a series of more than 20 pages, arranged by artist, with images of individual works, biographical information about the artist, and additional audio in some cases. The exhibition is supported by the Henry Luce Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities, among others.
