The Terry K Bell Gallery at the Museum of the Great Plains will host Re-Riding History: From the Southern Plains to the Matanzas Bay, beginning November 13. The traveling exhibit features 72 contemporary native artists from across the country. Their works portray the experience of American Indians forcibly imprisoned at Fort Marion, in St Augustine, Florida, from 1875-1878. The modern pieces, "reproduced in the same dimensions as the historic ledger drawings made at Fort Marion...[are] a contemporary response to a historical experience held intact within American Indian communities...."
