Lonnie G. Bunch III, the Secretary of the Smithsonian, will embark on a second leg of a national tour to discuss his new book A Fool’s Errand: Creating the National Museum of African American History and Culture in the Age of Bush, Obama, and Trump. Bunch visited eight cities to discuss his book in the fall, including New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles. He will visit four additional cities in February and March.
Women have been a predominant creative force behind Native American art, yet their individual contributions, for centuries, have largely remained unrecognized and anonymous. In the first major thematic exhibition to explore the artistic contributions of Native women, “Hearts of Our People: Native Women Artists” celebrates the achievements of these Native women and establishes their rightful place in the art world.
