Walt Disney World ® Resort
New Art Exhibition Comes To Epcot American Adventure Gallery This Summer
One of the hallmarks of the Epcot® World Showcase pavilions is their ongoing mission to bring authentic cultural experiences,
For some countries, that includes an exhibition of authentic cultural art. There have been recent updates to the art gallery in Mexico, and more exciting work is underway to refresh the gallery in Norway.
Also coming this summer to the American Heritage Gallery at The American Adventure is a brand new exhibition called “Creating Tradition: Innovation and Change in American Indian Art”.
“Creating Tradition: Innovation and Change in American Indian Art” is made possible through the collaboration of the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture (MIAC) in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) in Washington, D.C.
Among the featured artists with works on display are fashion designer Loren Aragon (Acoma Pueblo), noted doll maker Glenda McKay (Ingalik-Athabascan), and Juanita Growing Thunder (Assiniboine Sioux) from the Growing Thunder family of Montana.
As with other exhibitions that have graced the American Heritage Gallery, this new exhibition will feature interactive elements, where some of the artists will share the creative process and inspirations behind their works in their own words.
