Hopituy features six types of Hopi katsina figures as depicted in 170 objects, from woodcarving, basketry and painting. Within the cultural context they lend to each other, and by exploring the use of color, motifs and geometric shapes as relevant to each type, this exhibition examines the aesthetics of these figures from a perspective that is uniquely Hopi, or Hopituy. Exhibition materials are drawn from the FJJMA’s permanent collections, including those given by James T. Bialac, OU President and Mrs. David L. Boren, Richard H. and Adeline J. Fleischaker, Rennard Strickland and others.
