Exhibit Opening: Gifted! Recent Additions to the Heard Collection
Saturday, Dec. 19, 9:30 a.m.

The Heard Museum’s permanent collection is at the heart of its exhibits and programs. Gifted celebrates the gifted people who made the art, and the gifted collectors with an eye for art who generously gave their art to the museum. In addition, some donors have provided purchase funds, recognizing the museum’s need to buy the best of new artworks. Paintings, katsina dolls, ceramics, basketry and jewelry are all gifts the Heard has recently received. A subset of the exhibit will showcase recent gifts of paintings by three extraordinary women—Santa Clara Pueblo artists Pablita Velarde, her daughter Helen Hardin and her granddaughter Margarete Bagshaw.

All programs included with museum admission unless otherwise noted.
