D.Y. Begay: Process, Inspiration, and Colors

D.Y. Begay (Navajo) is a fourth generation weaver born and raised on a sheep farm on the Navajo Nation spanning the ''four corners'' where Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado meet. She learned how to spin, dye, and weave by observing her mother, whose woven rugs contributed to the family income. She experiments with traditional and exotic plant dyes to attain subtle and brilliant shades of color.

 

“Everything in my weaving is natural. I use the same techniques passed from my ancestors to me to create designs that have artistic and traditional value.”

 

She will be presenting a program discussing the sources of her inspiration along with sharing her processes and the origins of the various colors she uses.

 

Check-in at North Building, lower-level lobby.

 

Tickets are $5 for Friends of Native Arts members, $10 for DAM members, $12 others, free for students with ID.

 

Sponsored by Friends of Native Arts The Douglas Society, a DAM support group.

Gallery Tour of "Why We Dance: American Indian Art in Motion"

This multisensory exhibition will present the motives behind Native American dance and highlight the museum’s annual Friendship Powwow and American Indian Cultural Celebration. It features about 86 works, including 78 drawn from the DAM’s American Indian art collection.

 

In addition to historic works, the exhibition will showcase contemporary dance regalia from the regional Native American community. Painting and drawings will illustrate specific Native dances such as animal dances, healing dances, and rites of passage primarily found in the Plains region and the American Southwest.

 

Join curators Nancy Blomberg and John Lukavic for a closer look at these fascinating arts.
