In 1929, seven years after founding The Barnes Foundation, Dr. Albert C. Barnes and his wife Laura (left, in 1933) made their first of many trips to the American Southwest, initiating the couple’s collecting of Native American art; now, to kick off its centennial, the Philadelphia institution is presenting “Water, Wind, Breath: Southwest Native Art in Community,” its first exhibition dedicated to the subject, its myriad Pueblo and Navajo pottery, jewelry, and textiles, including Ramona Sakiestewa’s wool-cotton Basket Dance/11 from 1991, on view through May 15.
