Contemporary Native Art 101
Contemporary Native Art 101 is a visual review of contemporary Native art from the 20th century to today, focusing on its developments in painting, sculpture, prints, and multi media.
This collection is a display of diversity. Everything from photographs, beadwork, and works on paper and canvas to beaver fur, hides, and large installations are exhibited here for visitors to understand Native and Western art outside of typical representations.
The history and expression of Western and Native Art is on display inside and out of the museum. Outdoor pieces can be found throughout the grounds in a compelling balance between sculpture and nature.
The Western collection features art created from the 1890s to modern day. Enjoy works from members of the Taos Society of Artists as well as creations by early modernist artists including Georgia O’Keeffe, Robert Henri, and many more.
The Eiteljorg tells the stories of the peoples of North America in all their diversity and complexity. It’s a place for historical context, artistic expression, new ideas, and individual perspectives. Here, visitors immerse themselves in the diverse cultures of the West and Native America. Sharing these amazing American stories is what we do at the Eiteljorg.
