WHAT WE WEAR: A Contemporary Expression of Indigenous FashionApril 11th – July 8th, 2022
This exhibit exemplified modern Indigenous design of clothing and adornment worn by our tribal citizens. Through the work of twelve Indigenous artists, which included jewelry, clothing, accessories, and wall art.
Traditional and contemporary clothing or regalia are as diverse as the tribes they represent--from ribbon work of the plains Osage tribe to the beaded Choctaw collar necklace or an exquisite Chickasaw finger-woven belt; they are all very unique with special meaning or purpose.
In collaboration with this exhibit Chickasaw artist Tyra Shackleford taught a two-hour class on the ancient tribal art of Finger Weaving. Students made a small finger woven piece and will have all the knowledge leaving the class to start their own belt at home.

In collaboration with this exhibit George Curtis Levi on Saturday, June 30th, as part of a two-hour class, taught the techniques and cultural history of ledger drawing. A form of visual storytelling as there was no formal written language to record important life moments. Taking students through his process of how he continues the preservation of his tribal culture and walking them through the creation of their own ledger art drawing that tells their own story.
The Horse's LandscapeAugust 29th - November 10th
A view of the horse, their riders, the west and their natural environment that they live.
The history of the Native American west is made up of many perspectives. This show not only reflected on the image of tribal people, but of the cowboy, the horse, the landscape, the life and time of a vast period and all that it encompasses.
