Home lands : how women made the West by Virginia Scharff( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The storybook history of the American West is a male dominated narrative of drifters, dreamers, hucksters, and heroes, a tale that relegates women, assuming they appear at all, to the distant background. This book upends this view to remember the West as a place of homes and habitations brought into being by the women who lived there. The authors consider history's long span as they explore the ways in which women encountered and transformed three different archetypal Western landscapes: the Rio Arriba of northern New Mexico, the Front Range of Colorado, and the Puget Sound waterscape. This book, companion volume to the Autry National Center's exhibit, is an aggregate of women's history, the history of the American West, and studies in material culture. While linking each of these places' peoples to one another over hundreds, even thousands, of years, this work reimagines the West as a setting in which home has been created out of differing notions of dwelling and family and differing concepts of property, community, and history
L.A. Xicano( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The exhibition catalog for L.A. Xicano explores the artistic contributions of Mexican American and Chicano artists to American art and to Los Angeles's artistic development since 1945. The volume's six illustrated essays examine the life and works of the dozens of artists and photographers whose works are displayed and document the important role of artists' groups. The authors consider these artists and their work in the context of the turbulent history of the time, particularly the development of the Chicano Movement. A plate section features works from each of the four exhibitions." -- From the Publisher

Tipi : heritage of the Great Plains by Brooklyn Museum( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The tipi is an iconic symbol of Native North American culture, recognized throughout the world. Tipi: Heritage of the Great Plains reveals the history and significance of this remarkable architectural form from the 1830s to the present. Ideally suited to a nomadic lifestyle on the Plains, the tipi was the heart of Plains social, religious, and creative traditions. Trade and innovation brought new materials and ways of living to Plains people. As the nomadic way of life gave way to more permanent settlements, the tipi evolved in form but remained central to Plains culture and identity. The book examines the history and continuing tradition of the tipi by focusing on tribes from three geographical regions: the Blackfeet, Crow, Shoshone, and Northern Cheyenne in the north; the Arapaho and many Sioux groups, including Dakota, Yankton, Yanktonai, Lakota, Húnkpapa, and Oglala, in the Central Plains; and the Pawnee, Osage, Kiowa, Southern Cheyenne, Comanche, and Plains Apache in the south. Included are first-person narratives by Native people-elders, artists, military veterans, and an architect-that tell of the lasting cultural significance of the tipi within an ongoing process of cultural and artistic interpretation. The volume is richly illustrated with historic and contemporary photographs and artwork. Art made by women, who were the tipi makers and owners, include furnishings, clothing, and accessories. Associated with tipi-centered family life, these objects feature intricate beadwork, quill embroidery, and painting. Other artwork relate to the male warrior tradition: tipi liners, traditionally painted by men with their war exploits, as well as other objects associated with warfare and warrior societies. Children's life in the tipi is illustrated by cradles, garments, toys, and games. Works by contemporary Native artists represent modern interpretations of traditional forms. Dispelling stereotypes of the tipi as a picturesque vestige of the past, Tipi: Heritage of the Great Plains demonstrates how the tipi remains a part of a living culture deeply rooted in tradition."--Publisher description

Empire and liberty : the Civil War and the West( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Empire and Liberty brings together two epic subjects in American history: the story of the struggle to end slavery that reached a violent climax in the Civil War, and the story of the westward expansion of the United States. Virginia Scharff and the contributors to this volume show how the West shaped the conflict over slavery, and how slavery shaped the West, in the process defining American ideals about freedom and influencing battles over race, property, and citizenship. This innovative work embraces East and West, as well as North and South, as the United States observes the 2015 sesquicentennial commemoration of the end of the Civil War. A companion volume to an Autry National Center exhibition on the Civil War and the West, Empire and Liberty brings leading historians together to examine artifacts, objects, and artworks that illuminate this period of national expansion, conflict, and renewal."--Publisher information
