Fritz Scholder: Indian/Not Indian

November 1, 2008 – May 17, 2009

Museum: American Indian Museum Heye Center

Location: Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House

The exhibition highlights the more-than-40-year career of contemporary Native artist Fritz Scholder (Luiseno, 1937-2005) through a range of media -- paintings, bronze sculptures, and lithographs -- he used to explore his evocative interests and to focus on his deeply personal experiences. Particular emphasis are on his works produced in the 1980s and 1990s, exploring mythical beings, the mysterious, and the unknown.
