o-NERMAN1-900

The Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art of Overland Park, Kansas is currently displaying an exhibition called Contemporary American Indian Art- The Nerman Museum Collection.

The exhibition includes 55 selected works from 43 different artists, spanning a diverse range of cultures and geographies. The collection reveals how these American Indian artists are reinterpreting their cultural traditions through contemporary art.

“These artists share a common heritage of indigenous roots and an epic history of cultural change,” says Libby Lumpkin, professor of art history at the University of New Mexico. This collection proves that these people still have stories to tell and that American Indian art definitely has a place in today’s art world.

Contemporary American Indian Art will be on display through May 18, 2014.
