With more than 200 artworks, many of which are being publicly shown for the first time, Beauty Speaks for Us will be the inaugural exhibit in the Heard Museum’s new Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust Grand Gallery, which opens Feb. 9. The 7,000-square-foot gallery is the Heard’s first new gallery in 11 years.
Beauty Speaks for Us will present works of American Indian art that span generations and cultures but share the transcendent quality of beauty. The exhibit will be open until April 2, and will showcase a wide variety of artistic media, including pottery, textiles, jewelry, beadwork, functional art, paintings, basketry and carvings. The artwork is drawn from the Heard’s permanent collection as well as esteemed local collections.
