Join Art of the Americas curators Dennis Carr and Layla Bermeo for a conversation with renowned Navajo artist and author D.Y. Begay. This event marks the opening of Collecting Stories: Native American Art, an exhibition exploring the range of perspectives, motivations, and voices involved in building the MFA’s early holdings of Native American Art. Collecting Stories is the first in a series of three exhibitions funded by the Henry Luce Foundation that will use understudied works from the permanent collection to address critical themes in American art and the formation of modern American identities.
A reception follows the program.
