The stunning textiles featured in Māori Cloaks, Māori Voices have never been shown publicly since they entered the Fowler collection in 1965. For this exhibition, the Museum invited Maori artists and scholars, including Tharron Bloomfield, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Conservation Resident in the UCLA/Getty Program in Archaeological and Ethnographic Conservation, to comment on the cloaks’ ongoing meanings and relevance. In this gallery talk Bloomfield discusses indigenous material culture as it relates to his Māori perspective.

A blizzard dubbed "Attila" leveled 2,700 hectares of vineyards in Abruzzo, essentially decimating the region's viticulture. Sotto is offering an opportunity to celebrate the rich wine traditions of Abruzzo and remember the many small farmers who will feel the impact of the storm for years to come. Many wine lovers know only Montepulciano d'Abruzzo as easy-drinking, value-driven wine. But there are so many wonderful expressions of this appellation.
