Native American Masterpieces from the Charles and Valerie Diker Collection

An exhibition of 50 exceptional Native American works of art drawn entirely from New York’s Charles and Valerie Diker Collection—one of the most comprehensive and diverse private collections of its kind—will go on view at The Metropolitan Museum of Art beginning October 28. With artworks ranging in date from the second to the early 20th century, Native American Masterpieces from the Charles and Valerie Diker Collection will explore important artistic achievements from culturally distinct Indigenous peoples throughout the North American continent. The selected artworks demonstrate the unique visons of Indigenous artists who worked in a wide variety of aesthetic forms and media in innovative ways that defy categorization. The exhibition will make historic and regional connections between the works of art while highlighting superb and rare pieces from early periods.
