Curatorial Conversation

Thursday, Feb 28, 2013 7:30p

Dr. Rebecca Stone and Dr. Molly Bassett discuss the sacredness of the color blue in the ancient Americas. Across the indigenous Americas there was a hierarchy of colors and materials. Europeans were surprised to discover that many native cultures valued greenstones more than gold. From the prominence of indigo in ancient South America to its turquoise counterparts in Mesoamerica, blues and greens were prominent in the arts, ritual activities, and material cultures of the Americas.
