Inside the museum, see Floral Journey: Native North American Beadwork, the first exhibition to explore how beaded floral designs became a remarkable art form as well as a means of economic and cultural survival for Native peoples across North America.
A juried competition will take place with awards in 13 categories. The coveted Jackie Autry Purchase Award honors a single artwork designated each year for purchase by the Autry for inclusion in its permanent collections.
