TONIGHT: Pop-up demonstration and conversation!
Chilkat Weaving Past & Present
Included with $5 admission after 5 p.m.
Clarissa Rizal, Artist and Weaver
Deana Dartt, Curator of Native American Art
Join us for an informal weaving demonstration and curatorial conversation in the Museum’s Native American galleries with noted Alaskan Native artist and Chilkat/Ravenstail weaver Clarissa Rizal and Deana Dartt, Curator of Native American Art at the Museum.
Clarissa works mainly in fiber art, based on traditional Alaskan Native ceremonial regalia from Southeast Alaska, the home of her tribe, the Tlingit Indians. The regalia include Chilkat Blanket robes and weavings, Ravenstail robes and weavings, and Button Blanket robes and murals. Her works range from highly traditional pieces intended for ceremonial use, including copies of existing robes and regalia, to original contemporary art pieces that typically find homes in private collections and museums.
