The Beauty of Beadwork

Location: Ames Family Atrium

About The Event

Every third Saturday of each month, stop by the Ames Family Atrium to get a firsthand look at the art-making process. Each session will provide you the opportunity to engage and interact with a different Northeast Ohio maker during pop-up demonstrations and activities. See their work unfold and learn how artists create. 

Artist and educator Marlys Rambeau (Lakota/Cayuga), a long-time member of Cleveland’s Native American community, demonstrates the techniques and materials used in Indigenous beadwork of the Great Plains, examples of which are on view in Gallery 213.

This event is organized in celebration of Native American Heritage Month.
