The artists featured in the exhibit are both Native and White. Ultimately, these arts show how the popular image of Native American peoples has changed over time.
This collection of art aims to educate the viewer about the portrayal of Native Americans throughout American history. There have been positive and negative depictions from artists of many different backgrounds but one thing is clear, racial equality still does not exist in this country.
