The life of North American Indian is told in Curtis exhibit

There’s a birthday celebration going on at the Muskegon Museum of Art. The museum is marking the 150th anniversary of the birth of renowned photographer Edward Curtis by presenting 150 photogravures from “The North American Indian,” Curtis’s monumental project. The project is comprised of 20 volumes of text and more than 700 large portfolio prints that sought to document the Native American tribes of the Western United States.

 

 

“It’s a great overview of Curtis’s life and the scope of the entire North American Indian project,” said Art Martin senior curator of the museum.
