“Beadwork Adorns the World” at Museum of International Folk Art
April 22, 2018 - February 3, 2019
Museum of International Folk Art, 706 Camino Lejo, On Museum Hill, Santa Fe, NM 87505


The humble bead is the star of this exhibition, which follows its journey from its manufacture in Europe to its final weaving onto a garment or object in Africa, Borneo, India, and North America. Along the way, the show charts the aesthetic value and cultural significance of the bead, as well as, the artistic intentions and traditions of the beadworkers themselves.
