*The event has already taken place on this date: Thu, 01/06/2022
Opening on Nov. 5, 2021, the Heard Museum will present "Toward the Morning Sun: Navajo Pictorial Textiles from the Jean-Paul and Rebecca Valette Collection." The 2018 gift to the museum from Jean-Paul and Rebecca M. Valette of their acclaimed collection includes textiles primarily woven during the first three decades of the 20th century. The Valettes spent nearly 40 years collecting and researching the origins and history of these textiles. In many instances, the Valettes’ in-depth research developed valuable biographical information about the weavers. In 2017, the Valettes published the results of their comprehensive research, "Navajo Weavings with Ceremonial Themes: A Historical Overview of a Secular Art Form."
