America in the Making: Lewis and Clark, 1938 by Newell Convers Wyeth
Erasure and Invisibility: Columbus Day and the Representation of American Indians in Art

OCT 9 | 6-7PM | BRUNNIER ART MUSEUM

Join the conversation as we discuss the national narratives of Columbus Day, their parallel representation in art, and their role in shaping the public's ideas and (mis)understandings of American Indians. When these narratives are contrasted with artwork and images of American Indians made by American Indians, how might our understanding change? Using works of art from the permanent collection by N.C. Wyeth, Juane Quick-to-See Smith, Dan Namingha, and others, we will explore how the national narrative on American Indians continues to evolve. The evening will start with a panel discussion, followed by questions from the audience.
