Collecting Jewelry: Conversations with Artists
Continuing public programming for Collecting Jewelry: H. P. Mera’s Trip to Navajo Country in 1932, the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture are pleased to host three contemporary Navajo/Diné jewelers in conversation with exhibition curator Ross Altshuler and MIAC assistant curator, Lillia McEnaney.

Together, these artists will tell their stories of learning how to make jewelry, share stories about their own artistic inspirations and innovations, and reflect on the larger current moment in the Native art world.

Panelists: Michael Roanhorse (Navajo), Jennifer Curtis (Navajo), and Allen Aragon (Navajo)

Collecting Jewelry showcases 160 pieces of jewelry made between 1880-1930 that Dr. Mera gathered. These pieces were made with rudimentary tools and without available references for style and technique. The amazing pieces created form the basis of Navajo/Diné silversmithing and inspired the generations that followed.
