The Plains Indians : Artists of Earth and Sky

This groundbreaking exhibition will unite the Plains Indian masterworks found in European and North American collections, from pre-contact to contemporary, ranging from a 2,000-year-old Human Effigystone pipe to 18th-century painted robes to a 2011 beaded adaptation of designer shoes.

The distinct Plains aesthetic—singular, ephemeral and materially rich—will be revealed through an array of forms and media: painting and drawing; sculptural works in stone, wood, antler and shell; porcupine quill and glass bead embroidery; feather work; painted robes depicting figures and geometric shapes; richly ornamented clothing; composite works; and ceremonial objects.

Together the 140 works will reveal the accomplishments of Plains Indian artists, not only as the makers of objects that sustain tradition and embody change, but as the bearers of individual creative expression and innovation. Many nations are represented—Osage, Quapaw, Omaha, Crow, Cheyenne, Arapaho, Lakota, Blackfeet, Pawnee, Kiowa, Comanche, Mesquakie, Kansa and others. Objects will travel from France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Canada and the United States.

18th & Vine Jazz and Blues Festival

The host, the American Jazz Museum, purposely designed the festival to be a markedly diverse experience for jazz and blues lovers of all ages. So expect much of the same and more this year.

The music lineup is highlighted by:

  • Meshell Ndegeocello ­­­­— American singer-songwriter who has been credited for having “sparked” the neo-soul movement. She has earned 10 Grammy nominations.
  • Roy Hargrove — Grammy-winning jazz trumpeter who has played with Wynton Marsalis and Herbie Hancock. He was the bandleader of the progressive group, RH Factor, which combined elements of jazz, funk, hip-hop, soul, and gospel music.
  • Lucky Peterson — contemporary blues guitarist and keyboard player, who fuses soul, R&B, gospel and rock and roll into his music. He has recorded 18 solo albums.
  • Midnight Star — a high-energy R&B band that first hit the scene in the mid-’70s and then rolled out multiple top 10 and No. 1 hits in the ’80s. The group was recently inducted into the Soul Music Hall of Fame.
