IV. Southwestern Indians2017-03-30T20:22:20+00:00

Project Description

With the help of Twig Johnson, curator of Native American collections at the Montclair Art Museum, we were able to develop our most popular special collections, “The Kathy Reiss Memorial Native American Collections”. The objects in this collection are representative of what the Southwest Indian tribes would have used in their daily lives.
