MUSKEGON: Edward S. Curtis: The North American Indian Exhibit

May 11, 2017 12:00 am - Sep 10, 2017 12:00 am

This exhibition of national significance celebrates the artistic genius and lasting cultural legacy of Edward Curtis, an early-1900's photographer who sacrificed everything for his art, only to die in obscurity. Curtis’s portraits of Native Americans and their landscapes, lifestyles, and rituals have become iconic over the past century, and not without controversy. For what may be the first time, the entire collection of 723 original photoengraves from his North American Indian portfolio will be on display. Curtis undertook a 30-year desperate quest to create a historical record of what he believed to be a “vanishing race,” photographing Native Americans and documenting the rich and varied cultures of over 80 different tribes. Most of these tribes still survive today, despite half millennia of ordeals and obstacles. A series of special programs will accompany the exhibition.
