Featured Project

Masterworks Arts and Artists Series

Masterworks Arts and Artists Series, from the Heard Museum Art Collection

The Masterworks Series of exhibits and accompanying catalogs (“Hold Everything,” “BeDazzled,” and “So Fine”) by the Heard Museum brought Native voices to the interpretation of its collections by inviting American Indian artists to serve as guest curators for each exhibit. This online Masterworks Series links the artwork featured in the three exhibits and catalogs with selected archival holdings on each artist in the Heard Museum Billie Jane Baguley Library and Archives.
