Powerful Images


Gilmore, Joan, THE JOURNAL RECORD


A national touring exhibition titled "Powerful Images: Portrayals of Native America" will open Jan. 15, at the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Center. Co-sponsored by the Cowboy Hall and Ford Motor Co., this exhibition encourages visitors to test their perceptions of Native Americans and to consider how their concepts have been formed and generalized.

On display through April 5, the exhibition will offer material ranging from paintings and sculptures to children's toys and neon signs. Popular images of Native Americans in literature, art, film and advertising are examined and present comparisons with how Native people represent themselves through their own artistic traditions. A major feature of the exhibition -- a collaborative effort of Museums West, a consortium of 10 North American museums dedicated to the history, art and cultures of the West -- is a group of contemporary works by artists representing a number of Western tribes.

An invitational reception at 7 p.m. will be followed by an 8 p.m. commentary on the exhibit by Dave Warren, former deputy director, National Museum of the American Indian, Smithsonian Institution. A symposium on this exhibition is planned from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Jan. 17, with an admission fee of $7.50 for members of the Cowboy Hall and $10 for non-members. Reservations are required and may be made by calling 478-2250, Ext. 264.
