Temporary Exhibitions, Gutman Gallery
This exhibition reveals the impact of ledger drawings on transformations in Native American pictorial arts from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. The works in this exhibition illustrate how Native American artists adopted and adapted Western materials, methods, and conventions to their own artistic traditions, thereby inventing new art forms that comment upon and document cultural transitions brought on by Western education and cultural domination.
