This summer, a brand-new art exhibition is coming to the American Heritage Gallery at The American Adventure in Epcot, called “Creating Tradition: Innovation and Change in American Indian Art”.
This new installation highlights the importance of traditional Native culture in contemporary American Indian art.
The exhibition was created through the collaboration of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C., and the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Some of the featured artists that will be on display are doll maker Glenda McKay (Ingalik-Athabascan), fashion designer Loren Aragon (Acoma Pueblo), and Juanita Growing Thunder (Assiniboine Sioux) from the Growing Thunder family of Montana.
Just like other exhibitions that have traveled through the American Heritage Gallery, this new installation will feature interactive elements, which will let the artists share their creative process and inspiration behind their works.
The current exhibit, the Kinsey Collection, is going away after a five-year agreement. The gallery is being updated as planned.
