Considering Edward: Recent Gifts to the Permanent Collection
7 Feb, 2009 - 10 May, 2009
For three decades, Curtis photographed 80 Native American tribes throughout the American West, amid personal and professional hardships. In many cases, his images and texts remain the only recorded history of certain tribes. This exhibition includes Native American responses, including observations from tribes who now use Curtis’ photographs for cultural preservation. MoPA is grateful to Howard and Jo Weiner for this gift of Curtis’ photogravures.
