This first comprehensive retrospective of the works of Native American modernist George Morrison (Grand Portage Band of Chippewa, 1919-2000) includes 78 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. Highlights include selections from his Lake Superior landscape series and abstract expressionist works from his New York period.

Organized by the Minnesota Museum of American Art, Arts Midwest, and the Plains Art Museum.
