Native Women Artists

Planning for a traveling exhibition, a catalog, a symposium, and public programs on Native American women artists from prehistory to the present.

The Minneapolis Institute of Arts (MIA) requests a planning grant for Native American Women Artists, a touring exhibition to open at the museum in fall 2017. Native American Women Artists will break new ground as the first comprehensive exhibition exclusively devoted to Native women artists in all media, from prehistory to the present, and from all over the United States and parts of Canada. The exhibition will comprise approximately 175 art works and will be installed in the nine Target galleries, encompassing 11,000 square feet, which are reserved for major exhibitions. After its run at the MIA, the exhibition will travel to the Philbrook Museum of Art & other venues to be determined.
