Beginning April 7, 2021

Makers and Materials of the Americas Exhibition

The Longyear Museum of Anthropology (LMA) team invites you to celebrate the virtual opening of our latest exhibition: Makers and Materials of the Americas. Through a glimpse at 40 works from the Longyear Museum of Anthropology collections from Canada to Peru, this student-curated exhibition aims to center individual makers through close attention to the materials used and the makers’ stylistic choices. The show also features 17 loaned works celebrating the artistry, craftsmanship, and creativity of contemporary Haudenosaunee artists and makers. Join student curators and LMA staff as they share their projects and offer a glimpse into what it was like to create an exhibit during a pandemic.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, visits to the Longyear Museum of Anthropology are currently limited and are available to the on-campus community by appointment only. Appointments to visit the current Makers and Materials of the Americas show in the Alumni Hall gallery will be available beginning April 7. Please schedule a visit at least 48 hours in advance.

For the spring and summer of 2021, priority will be given to graduating seniors and faculty interested in incorporating the exhibit into their classes for the fall. We anticipate that the show will be open for regular viewing hours during the Fall 2021 semester. 

A virtual exhibition opening will be held Tuesday, April 6 at 5:30p.m.
