MINGLED VISIONS: IMAGES FROM THE NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN BY EDWARD CURTIS

February 7 - May 10, 2015

Mingled Visions features 40 original photogravures from Edward S. Curtis’ epic work, The North American Indian, including one of Curtis’ earliest images taken in 1895 of Princess Angeline, the elderly daughter of Chief Sealth. The portrait won the top prize in a photographic contest and helped launch his photographic career, ultimately leading to his mission to document and celebrate the vanishing heritage of
Native American people. He spent three decades documenting more than 80 tribes west of the Mississippi, producing more 40,000 images and thousands of pages of text. A definitive project of the American West, The North American Indian was published in 20 volumes from 1907 to 1930.

A traveling exhibition organized by the Dubuque Museum of Art, Iowa.
