Looking Back Looking Forward: Native American Art from the Permanent Collection
Lower level Lentz Gallery
April 28 - August 1, 2015
Inspired by the Standing Bear and the Trail Ahead Symposium, Looking Back, Looking Forward: Native American Art from the Permanent Collection features different forms of artistic expression found in Native American artworks from the Great Plains Art Museum’s permanent collection.
Alongside works by Native American artists, stereoviews and photographs from the 19th Century portray the indigenous peoples of the Great Plains as captured through a non-native lens. Such images provide a glimpse of a way of life that inspired artists of later generations and demonstrates the significance of Native American culture in the past, present, and future of the Great Plains.
This exhibit was produced with the support of the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.
