The Marjorie Barrick Museum offers opportunities to learn about the native cultures of the southwest United States and Mesoamerica. From the survival arts of the Southern Paiute to the dramatic weaving of the Navajo and beautiful carving of the Hopi, the exhibits help the visitor to appreciate not only the beauty of objects but their personal and spiritual value. The objects included in Gods, Kings and Artisans of Ancient Mesoamerica, Painted Vessels of the Maya Elite, Ceramics of Ancient West Mexico and Figurines span over two thousand years. Civilizations flourished across Mexico and Central America prior to the arrival of Europeans in the New World. Several distinct archaeological cultures developed, a few of which are represented in the collection here.
