Lloyd Kiva New wasn’t the only In­dian farm kid from Ok­la­homa to broaden his hori­zons, but New did it twice. He es­tab­lished a suc­cess­ful fash­ion busi­ness fea­tur­ing his own de­signs in Scotts­dale, and then left it all to fo­cus on ed­u­cat­ing Na­tive youth as the first art di­rec­tor at the In­sti­tute of Amer­i­can In­dian Arts. A New Cen­tury: The Life and Legacy of Chero­kee Artist and Ed­u­ca­tor Lloyd Kiva New, open­ing Sun­day, Feb. 14, at the Mu­seum of In­dian Arts & Cul­ture, ex­hibits fab­u­lous fab­rics and other items from New’s il­lus­tri­ous ca­reers. On the cover is a de­tail of a New shirt; photo Blair Clark, cour­tesy Ay­sen New.
