Celebrate the artistic possibilities and inherent beauty of exuberant color. Color offers a fresh way to look at and think about Mia’s collection of Native, modern, and contemporary art. In the 20th century, many artists in the United States and Europe sought to make their works pure expressions of form and color.
Native American art significantly influenced such modern art—which in turn had an effect on contemporary Native art. Many people may think of Native art as unchanging and of the past. Here, the complex, cutting-edge character of Native art is boldly presented.
