This exhibition explores the life, art, and legacy of Frank Day (1902-1976), a self-taught Native American painter from California who depicts Maidu customs. Forty-nine historical photographs and Maidu artifacts from Day's home territory--Berry Creek and Bald Rock areas in California--are included. Works by three living Maidu artists--Dal Castro, Harry Fonseca, and Judith Lowry--are also on view.
