About the exhibition
Metropolitan Museum presents an exhibition "The Art of Native Americans: the collection of Charles and Valerie Diker".

This landmark exhibition in the American Wing Museum displays 116 masterpieces representing the achievements of American craftsmen from more than fifty national cultures throughout North America.

The exhibits cover a significant time period: from the second century BC to the beginning of the twentieth century. All works at the exhibition are the promised gifts, donations and loans for the Metropolitan Museum from innovative collectors Charles and Valerie Diker.

The Dyker collection, long considered the most significant repository of historical Indian art in private hands, has particular strengths in British Columbia and Alaska sculpture, in California baskets, pottery from southwestern Pueblo, plains and regalia, and also in rare accessories from eastern North America.

Based on the materials of the official site Metropolitan Museum.
