denverartmuseum photos download#TextureTuesday feature: Ute artists boldly expressed their skills and creativity on items as small as these pouches. Functional needle and awl cases, flint bags and money pouches showcase a range of Ute design motifs, often with two different schemes on the back and front. Artists utilized leather, beadwork and thread to craft geometric, floral and fanciful designs.

About 65 objects created from 2011 to the present will be featured including figurative works, text-based wall hangings, a significant selection of Everlast beaded punching bags, painted works on rawhide and canvas, and video.

denverartmuseum photos downloadThis week's #FanFavorite features a unique perspective of "Garden Party on the Terrace of a Country Home," a piece in our Spanish Colonial collection, and was captured by @lizzymags123.
