"Creating Tradition: Innovation and Change in American Indian Art" is a new exhibit coming to the American Heritage Gallery at Epcot.

Opening this summer, the gallery inside the American Adventure pavilion will be produced with the collaboration of the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture (MIAC) in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) in Washington, D.C.

Some of the featured artists with works on display are fashion designer Loren Aragon (Acoma Pueblo), noted doll maker Glenda McKay (Ingalik-Athabascan), and Juanita Growing Thunder (Assiniboine Sioux) from the Growing Thunder family of Montana.

Similar to previous exhibit at the American Heritage Gallery, this new exhibition will feature interactive elements, where some of the artists will share the creative process and inspirations behind their works in their own words.

I believe its a 5 year agreement with an off and on rotation of different/new items.

I'm glad that, despite all the IP empahsis, that they still do things like this.

One of my "must do's" when I go to Epcot in a few weeks, along with sitting for endless hours listening to the music around Innoventions.

I was inside the chateau a few years ago and its beautiful inside. Just clean it up, hang up some artwork, and throw open the doors!

So much wasted potential there

Looks good! I wish they would do something like this in the empty buildings in the Canada pavilion

I cannot wait to see this! It sounds amazing, Native American art is among my favorite. I have a few pieces in my home that I treasure. Will be so interesting to learn the history and see so many examples from such a large number of tribes!

Nice, I can say from having been there a number of times, some of the works at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture are stunning. Good to see them being placed on display at Epcot.
