By Her Hand: Native American Women, Their Art, and The Photographs of Edward S. Curtis

Exhibition Website

Aug 13 2016 - Nov 20 2016

This innovative traveling exhibition brings together Native American artwork and objects, with the iconic photographs by Edward S. Curtis, creating a relationship between the images and artifacts, enriching the meaning of both by giving context, insight and perspective. Focused on Native women and their art, the exhibition allows us to more deeply understand their roles within Native society, culture and family. Both classic and lesser-known Curtis photographs of women, their artwork and the environment in which they lived, from the internationally acclaimed Christopher G. Cardozo Collection, will be incorporated in the exhibition.
