November 5, 2013 – January 25, 2014

This exhibition combines two independent but related exhibits.  Creating: Quilts of the Lakota is organized by The Heritage Center at Red Cloud Indian School, Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, and the Arthur Ross Gallery at the University of Pennsylvania.  Contemporary Creations: Arts and Crafts by Lakota Artists is organized by C-H Jacobson Produktion AB of Stockholm, Sweden.  The combined exhibit presents 20 eye-dazzling quilts and 32 items of apparel and dance regalia made in traditional style by Lakota artisans.

The MOA will share the combined exhibit with Delta Arts Center (deltaartscenter.org), also in Winston-Salem.  Each venue will display about half of the quilts and crafts. For the complete experience, patrons are encouraged to visit both museums.
