Like many people, when you think of "Indian art" you may in fact envision a style that was first popularized by the "Kiowa Five," a group of students who attended the University of Oklahoma in the late 1920s. Their works continue to strongly influence representations of native culture even today.
During the month of November, the museum's Bell Gallery features a selection of original works and prints, ranging from members of the Kiowa Five to later artists painting in their tradition. Although similar in appearance, each artist is notable for their own personal style. For example, see if you can spot the difference between a Woody Crumbo, and, well, anyone else!
From time to time, we'll post info here about what's going-on at the museum.
