Native Art History is Made Here

Open through March 3, 2024

Native Art History is Made Here features a range of artworks from 1999 and 2001 Fellows from the Eiteljorg Museum’s Contemporary Native Art Fellowship.


Looking back at the 1999 and 2001 Eiteljorg Fellowships. 

The Eiteljorg has been making Native American art history since 1999, when the Contemporary Art Fellowship began. As the museum prepares for the 2023 Fellowship in November, we take a look back at brilliant and imaginative works by contemporary artists from the first two rounds of the biennial Fellowship, in 1999 and 2001.

Recognized today as some of the most influential and best-known contemporary Native
artists, the Fellows whose works appear in this new exhibition include Allan Houser, George Morrison, Joe Feddersen, Shelley Niro, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith and more. This range of artworks, which includes sculptures, paintings, prints, installations and multimedia, influenced the title Native Art History Is Made Here.
