Native American art, past & present

The Peninsula Fine Art Center (PFAC) is presenting a Native American art exhibit entitled “To Walk in Beauty” from January 21 to March 26.

To complement traditional art and artifacts, an exhibition featuring contemporary Native American artists can also be viewed.
