Virtual Talk: “The Art of Turtle Island: Dakota Floral Legacy”
Holly Young, creator of Art in Bloom’s signature artwork Floral Legacy, and multidisciplinary artist Graci Horne will join Jill Ahlberg Yohe, Mia’s associate curator of Native American art, in a lively conversation. Learn about Dakota art, Young’s inspiration for Floral Legacy, and Native perspectives on floral art.
Floral Legacy is not just a stunning art object; it’s also a functional double-sided woman’s bag. Drawing on traditional methods of materials collection, design, and construction, the signature quill and beadwork piece demonstrates Indigenous heritage and skill carried brilliantly to contemporary style.
