Featuring Dr. Orlando Hernández Ying, this talk revisits the history and dissemination of the art of metallurgy in the ancient Americas through a long and extensive process of intercultural exchange that extended over vast territories from South America to the periphery of the Caribbean Basin during the first millennium CE. The stylistic similarities between gold ornaments found namely in Colombia and Central Panama from the Dallas Museum of Art's collection will serve as documental evidence of the existence of a pan-regional cosmology over native cultures that until recently are being studied from a broader geo-cultural perspective.

Before the lecture, guests can tour the newly refreshed Indigenous American Art galleries with Orlando Hernández-Ying as he discusses objects featured in the lecture.
