About this title


Native American arts and crafts are enjoying renewed appreciation and increasing recognition as a vital part of America's cultural heritage. In Native American Art, the richness and diversity of this centuries-old tradition is celebrated through nearly 300 color plates and incisive commentary. Tracing the development of American Indian art from 20,000 years ago to the present day, it features exquisite works from every part of North America.

From Publishers Weekly:

Organized by region, this handsomely illustrated celebration of Native American arts and crafts splices an absorbing text, 290 color plates, numerous photographs and extended captions. The study demonstrates how clothes, baskets, Navajo weavings, Hopi kachina dolls, jewelry, quillwork, pottery, carvings and ceremonial objects fit into the very fabric of Native American societies. At the same time, the authors provocatively argue that American Indian art, far from being conservative and firmly anchored in the past, has been on the cutting edge of the historical present, continually reinventing its means of expression to absorb and accommodate cultural change. The album concludes with an arresting survey of 20th-century Native painting, sculpture, photography, prints and performance art, in all of which ancient images, symbols and visual metaphors take on new meanings. Penney is a curator at the Detroit Institute of Arts; Longfish, a Seneca/Tuscarora, is an artist and professor at UC-Davis.
