Please join the DC Hoos on Saturday, May 9th at 11AM for a docent-led group tour of the Renwick Gallery’s current Special Exhibition, Hearts of Our People: Native Women Artists.

The special show at the Renwick Gallery celebrates the contributions of Native women to the art world. This landmark exhibition is the first major thematic show to explore the artistic achievements of Native women. Its presentation at SAAM’s Renwick Gallery includes 82 artworks dating from antiquity to the present, made in a variety of media from textiles and beadwork, to sculpture, time-based media and photography. At the core of this exhibition is a firm belief in the power of the collaborative process. A group of exceptional Native women artists, curators, and Native art historians have come together to generate new interpretations and scholarship of this art and their makers, offering multiple points of view and perspectives to enhance and deepen understanding of the ingenuity and innovation that have always been foundational to the art of Native women.

The tour begins at 11AM, but please plan to arrive a few minutes early to check in.

This event is free of charge, but space is limited, so register to reserve your spot today!

Register here!
