Sam Noble Museum Introduces New Native American Exhibits


  Sam Noble Museum The Sam Noble Museum, a haven for cultural artifacts from Oklahoma and across the world, introduces two temporary exhibits this fall, thanks to a generous donation to the University of Oklahoma from James T. Bialac, one of the most important private collectors of Native American art in the country.


In 1964, Bialac purchased a painting by Robert Chee (Hashke-Yil-Cale), initiating his nearly 50-year journey into art collection and on September 21, the Sam Noble Museum unveiled Dancers and Deities: Kachinas from the James T, Bialac Native American Art Collection, the first of two exhibits honoring his commitment to Native American Art. On Oct. 5, the museum will open with Southwest Visions: Paintings from the James T. Bialac Native American Art Collection
