The Stark Museum of Art’s renovation has made room for a permanent installation of its collection of Native American art. The exhibition: Creating from Traditions: Arts of the American Indians includes examples from the Museum’s permanent collection of beadwork, baskets, pottery, jewelry, and carvings from diverse American Indian traditions, primarily from the American West. “With our recent remodeling, the Stark Museum now is able to devote an entire gallery to American Indian art. This gives the visitor the opportunity to see objects that previously were not on view and to see them in the context of art objects,” said Sarah Boehme, Director.
Other permanent collections in the museum, located in Orange, TX, include the complete porcelain American Bird Series by Dorothy Doughty and the only complete series of The United States in Crystal, a collection of crystal urns produced by Steuben Glass to depict the 50 states and the Union.
