Art Talk: Native American Perspectives

Mar 9th @ 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Location: Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art

Paintings, sculpture, prints, and photographs from the 19th century reflect the changing perspectives and attitudes regarding Native Americans, as evidence in the focused exhibition, Changing Perspectives of Native Americans. The very earliest images are documentary: recording characteristics and customs of the native residents of North America. In the wake of controversial laws such as the Indian Relocation Act (1830), the ethnographic and documentary emphasis grew into more romantic renderings. Join curator Mindy Besaw for a closer look at works by George Catlin, John Mix Stanley, Edmonia Lewis, and Edward Curtis. Free, no registration.
