This exhibit features the work of indigenous artists (established and emerging) from North America, Peru, Iraq, and New Zealand.

This exhibit was made possible by the Mid-America Arts Alliance and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) didn’t just design a house.

This exhibit employs high-quality reproductions of Wright’s drawings of interiors, furnishings, and household objects.

Funded by a grant from Richard J. Stern Foundation for the Arts.
