Contemporary Native American Ledger Art
Drawing on Tradition
Temporary Exhibitions, Harrington Gallery
Despite being stylistically diverse, the works in this exhibition are all linked both conceptually and formally to the tradition of Plains Indian ledger art of the nineteenth century. Created by artists who employ visual narrative as a means of exploring their cultural heritage and issues of present-day Native experience, these works may be read as expressions of solidarity and survival in the twenty-first century.
Generously funded by Jonathan L. Cohen, Class of 1960, Tuck 1961.
Curated by Karen S. Miller, Assistant Curator for Special Projects
