Shortly after the camera was invented photographers began turning it on native peoples. But rarely were indigenous peoples viewed through the eyes of indigenous photographers. 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. He saw each building as a fully integrated whole and painstakingly designed stained glass windows, furniture, carpeting, and even lighting fixtures to reflect his concept. 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.
