Expanded Views: Native American Art in Focus
Over the past several years the Museum has been working to build up its collection of Native American works of art, both historical and contemporary. Expanded Views: Native American Art in Focus features the new acquisitions in this area, and presents a large scale work by the artist James Lavadour, on loan for this exhibition. Works as diverse as a traditional Acoma Manta and Cherokee tipi cover will be shown together with contemporary works by Lavadour and artists Wendy Red Star and Marie Watt. Additionally, a select number of paintings from the Museum’s established American paintings collection will be shown as part of the installation.
