Native American Ledger Drawings from the Hood Museum of Art

October 2, 2010, through December 19, 2010
The Mark Lansburgh Collection



Temporary Exhibitions, Gutman Gallery


This collection, brought together by Mark Lansburgh, Dartmouth Class of 1949, is considered to have been the largest and most diverse of its type in private hands; it was acquired by Dartmouth College in 2007. Curated by Joe Horse Capture, this exhibition features drawings depicting both the struggle for cultural survival and the Native adaptation to an imposed non-Native lifestyle during a period of profound upheaval among the Plains peoples during the second half of the nineteenth century. It is presented in conjunction with a Leslie Center for the Humanities Institute entitled Multiple Narratives in Plains Ledger Art: The Mark Lansburgh Collection.

Generously funded by Jonathan L. Cohen, Class of 1960, Tuck 1961.
