#ArtsMatter #ParksMatter

Join Team WRSP for the Eiteljorg Museum’s Modern Spirit: The Art of George Morrison Exhibit at White River State Park.

#ArtsMatter #ParksMatter

The first comprehensive retrospective of a key Native American modernist, Modern Spirit: The Art of George Morrison, includes drawings, paintings, prints, and sculpture that bring together concepts of abstraction, landscape, and spiritual reflection in the mind and eye of this important 20th-century artist.

Half of the 80 works in the exhibition issue from the largest and most important collection of Morrison’s artwork in the country, the Minnesota Museum of American Art in St. Paul, Minnesota.  The other 40 stem from important public and private collections from across the country.

The exhibition is curated by W. Jackson Rushing III (Adkins Presidential Professor of Art History) and Mary Lou Milner Carver (Chair in Native American Art at the University of Oklahoma).  Rushing’s teaching and scholarship explores the interstitial zone between (Native) American studies, anthropology, and art history.  Check-in and visit http://mmaamorrison.org for more information.
