New on the Road! Savages and Princesses


The exhibition Savages and Princesses: The Persistence of Native American Stereotypes is headed to its first stop at the Red Cloud Opera House Art Gallery, part of the esteemed Willa Cather Foundation in Red Cloud, Nebraska.

The exhibition opens April 6 and begins its five-year tour going into 2024 with stops scheduled in Oregon, Kansas, Oklahoma, Florida, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.

Stereotypes of Native American peoples are ubiquitous and familiar. The exhibition brings together works by twelve contemporary Native American visual artists who reclaim their right to represent their identities as Native Americans. Whether using humor, subtlety, or irony, the telling is always fiercely honest and dead-on. Images and styles are created from traditional, contemporary, and mass culture forms.
