American Indian Art and Culture
The Point Pleasant Borough Branch of the Ocean County Library will present the program
“American Indian Art and Culture” on Tuesday, October 19, 2010, at 3:00 p.m.
This program is funded by the Horizons Speakers Bureau of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The lecture, led by curator Twig Johnson, surveys the various American Indian cultures and their arts. For thousands of years, American Indians have been producing art that defines their world. The creation of items such as household implements, baskets, ceramics, clothing, weapons and hunting items illustrates not only their artistic talent but also their respect for nature, religion and everyday life. By using examples from the Montclair Art Museum’s fine collection, this lecture illustrates the enduing traditions of American Indian art.
This program is free and open to the public. Please register online at http://www.theoceancountylibrary.org or call 732-295-1555. The Point Pleasant Borough Branch library is located at 834 Beaver Dam Road, Point Pleasant, NJ.
