Art of Native America: The Charles and Valerie Diker Collection
Metropolitan Museum of Art
Art of Native America: The Charles and Valerie Diker Collection will feature 116 masterworks representing the achievements of artists from more than 50 distinct indigenous traditions across North America. Ranging in date from the 2nd to the early 20th century, the diverse works are promised gifts (first announced in spring 2017), donations, and loans to The Met from the pioneering collectors Charles and Valerie Diker. The collection has particular strengths in sculpture from British Columbia and Alaska, California baskets, pottery from Southwestern pueblos, Plains drawings and regalia, and rare accessories from the eastern Woodlands.
