The Museum is temporarily closed for renovation.
Shared Ideologies, an exhibition of selected works by Native American artists from the 1970s to the present will offer visitors an opportunity to engage in a sociopolitical dialogue about the space between history and memory. Paintings and works on paper by artists such as the late T.C. Cannon (Kiowa, 1946 – 1978), Emmi Whitehorse (Navajo, born 1957), Cara Romero (Chemeheuvi, born 1977), Tom Poolaw (Kiowa/Delaware, born 1959), Julie Buffalohead (Ponca, born 1972) and several others, transcend the two-dimensional artwork by their elders that came to define Native American art. Shared Ideologies invites non-Native viewers into a dialogue with indigenous artists on themes that recenter master narratives of history and amplify both pan-Indian and tribally specific experiences while pondering a path to a shared future. A number of works from the Muscarelle Museum of Art’s Native American collection are being shown for the first time in this exhibition.
