Explore different cultures through artisan goods and ancient stories. Learn about the lives of Native Americans, see original artifacts, and enjoy majestic scenery of the American West with paintings by Albert Bierstadt and Georgia O’Keeffe. In the studio use clay to make your own vessels, create new folklore narratives inspired by mysterious effigy figures and design textile patterns through weaving and printmaking techniques.
