Ethnographic and Contemporary Art Collections

The Pequot Museum has more than 2,000 objects that illustrate the continuing artistic and cultural traditions of Native peoples in the Eastern Woodlands from the 1600s to the present. The Ethnographic Collection includes historical items made, gathered, and used by Native peoples primarily of the Eastern Woodlands and especially New England. The Contemporary Traditional Collection includes objects made by contemporary Native artists of the Eastern Woodlands, which show a continuation of style, technique, and/or materials. It also contains contemporary fine art such as paintings, sculpture, and prints. For information, email.
