Native American Art and Pat McCrory on Stimulus Money


Part One: Native American Art
We'll hear the story of a local art collector whose post-retirement travels allowed him to amass a large collection of work by Native American artists. He has put together a museum-quality collection of natives' art of the New World (Alaska to Guatemala). His collection is now on display at the Mint Museum of Art. We'll talk to him about the histories of some of the pieces themselves. Guests Nelson Grice - Retired accountant and local art collector Dr. Dorie Reents-Budet - Curator for Ancient American Art at the Mint Museum of Art See pictures of some of the pieces in Grice's collection Mint Museum of Art | Passionate Journey: The Grice Collection of Native American Art Part Two: Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory on Stimulus Money Last week, Mayor McCrory wrote an opinion article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal about stimulus money and his thoughts about where the money's going and whether it will be useful in the long run.
