The Asheville Art Museum has a history of honoring and preserving the tradition of Cherokee art, and supporting contemporary Cherokee artists is an integral part of this mission. The art of the Cherokee represents the longest tradition of art and creativity in Western North Carolina and the Museum exhibits some of these great works from their growing Cherokee art collection in an effort to celebrate this artistic heritage.
