First American Art Magazine and the Ralph T. Coe Center for the Arts are pleased to partner in producing Collections Spotlight, an interactive, online discussion. Diverse scholars and Native artists will select artworks from the Coe’s collection to interpret and discuss. The virtual Zoom format will bring together people from diverse regions, and the artist can take audience questions at the end.
The first episode features Tracy Newkumet Burrow (Caddo/Delaware), a regalia-maker and textile artist based in Oklahoma City. She will discuss the symbolism and techniques embedded in a Caddo dush-toh (a women’s hourglass-shaped hairpiece) and a pair of beaded Caddo/Delaware moccasins.
Tuesday, May 12
3:00 PM Mountain / 4:00 PM Central
2:00 PM Pacific / 5:00 PM Eastern
