|Passionate Journey: The Grice Collection of Native American Art at The Mint Museum of Art|
Huipil late 20th Century, Tzotzil Maya, San Andrés, Chiapas, Mexico, cotton, Gift of Nelson and Gretchen Grice.
CHARLOTTE, N.C.- The depth and breadth of modern Native American art is featured in Passionate Journey: The Grice Collection of Native American Art. From Alaska to Guatemala, the exhibition highlights personal expressions in ceramics, basketry, textiles and performance masks. These distinctive works are the outward expressions of personal and religious ideologies, commentaries on social and political conditions, and the material manifestation of cultural survival.
Nelson and Gretchen Grice have been supporting The Mint Museum for many years through donations of Native American artworks. The Grice collection features contemporary Native American pottery primarily from the Southwest; Native American basketry from the Southwest to Alaska; modern Maya textiles from Guatemala and Mexico; and performance masks from West Mexico.
The exhibition is accompanied by a full-color catalogue documenting the artistic traditions presented in the Grice collection. The books chapters discuss each artistic tradition and place the works within the broader cultural context in which the artworks were created.
