Indigenous American artists continually take inspiration from the world around them. While their work may sometimes reference Indigenous traditions and lifeways that have been maintained or altered, their work may equally be inspired by formal problems of line and color instead, like other artists around the globe. While many Indigenous artists continue to work in media that are centuries or millennia old, like beadwork, ceramics, basketry, and weaving, others have taken note of the trends of contemporary art and gone in a different artistic direction. It’s these latter artists who are the focus of Indigenous American Art 1960-2000.

Featuring the work of well-known Indigenous artists like Fritz Scholder (Luiseño), R.C. Gorman (Navajo), Pablita Velarde (Santa Clara Pueblo), and Jaune Quick-to-See Smith (Salish), this exhibit demonstrates a wide variety of traditional and contemporary subject matter depicted through an equally wide variety of materials from sand painting to bronze sculpture
