This 18-month rotating exhibition series features works by contemporary Native American artists, two at a time. All the artists represent the succeeding generations of art begun by George Morrison (1919-2000, Grand Portage Band of the Lake Superior Ojibwe) and Allan Houser (1914-1994, Warm Springs Chiricahua Apache), two major figures of 20th-century Native American art. The series opened with installations by Rick Bartow (Yurok) and Kay WalkingStick (Cherokee) and continues with works by Joe Feddersen and Harry Fonseca, Hachivi Edgar Heap of Birds and Richard Ray Whitman, George Longfish and Nora Naranjo-Morse (2/14-5/9/04), Judith Lowry and Shelley Niro, and closes with works by Jaune Quick-to-See-Smith and Marie Watt.
