Hello and Happy Friday! Most of you thought that today wasn’t coming, but here we are. We’re going to Oklahoma City to visit the Red Earth Museum.
RED EARTH MUSEUM
From the website:
Red Earth, Inc. promotes the rich traditions of American Indian arts and cultures through education, a premier festival, a museum and fine art markets.
Red Earth, Inc. began in 1978 with the establishment of the Center of the American Indian, a museum dedicated to showcasing Native American arts. In 1987, a group of influential community and tribal leaders founded the Red Earth American Indian Cultural Festival to showcase Native American dance and art. The two groups merged in 1992 to create Red Earth, Inc., which is now one of the most respected organizations of its type in the United States.
Red Earth hosts a wide collection of more than 1,400 Native American fine art, pottery, basketry, textiles, and bead work. They also feature acclaimed traveling exhibitions.
The 29th Annual Red Earth Native Cultural Festival will be held June 5-7, 2015 at the Cox Convention Center, downtown Oklahoma City. Expect to see American Indian artists, dancers and more. To learn more go to their website and click Festival in the site menu.
On December 7, 2014, Red Earth will have a Christmas Open House & Volunteer Party from 2pm – 5pm.
They have a wonderful display of American Indian works. You can also take a peek at their shop for paintings, pottery, books, clothing, cultural items, stationary or prints.
