The Martin D. Porter Gallery at Toledo School for the Arts presents
First Peoples – A Celebration of Native American Arts & Culture
Featuring works selected from the collections of Taylor Moyer and Peg Francisco.
This collection celebrates the visionary creativity and technical mastery of native North American arts and artists across many generations and cultures. Created often as works of spiritual, ceremonial, or cultural significance, the objects on display in this exhibition also exhibit artistic qualities like innovative uses of materials; precision craftsmanship; ingenious patterns, designs, and abstraction; and expressiveness of form and representation.
This exhibit encompasses a range of cultural and historical diversity. The works span from the North and Southeast, Southwest, and the great American west.
