Photo Description:
The Governor's Collection is a collaborative effort between the New York State Museum and Native American communities to create a collection of contemporary crafts representing the living culture and thriving art of Native People's of New York. Since 1996, the Museum has worked with Native American artists each year to collect examples of beadwork, basketry, sculpture, silverwork, clothing, carving, and pottery. The collection reflects the broad range of artwork from Native artists from functional to unique and decorative, and from traditional to modern in style and technique. Award winning artists such as Tammy Tarbell-Boehning, Mohawk, Peter Jones, Onondaga, and Rosemary Hill, Tuscarora, are among those represented in the Museum's recent acquisitions. http://www.nysm.nysed.gov/govcollect/
