Current Exhibitions

Through February 1, 2015

The Native North American gallery on the first floor will next host a show of objects on loan to the Carlos Museum representing the Wixarika (often known as the Huichol) indigenous people of modern western Mexico. Their stunning beaded objects and pressed-yarn "paintings" span the sacred to the secular, from prayer bowls used on their pilgrimage ceremonies to masks made expressly for collectors.


February 19 - June 1, 2014
This exhibition features recently discovered copperplates from the Jesuit Wierix collection from De Krijtberg, Amsterdam, and prints by three members of the famous Wierix family: brothers Jan Wierix (1549-ca. 1618), Hieronymus Wierix (1553-1519), and Anton II Wierix (ca. 1555-1604). The Jesuit Wierix collection of copperplates came to light in the summer of 2000 when the Jesuit residence at De Krijtberg (the Church of St. Francis Xavier) in downtown Amsterdam was being vacated for renovations.
