Edward S. Curtis: Sacred Legacy
September 29 - December 17, 2018
Edward Curtis, born in 1868 built his first camera at the age of twelve and embarked on his lifelong photographic career. 150 years later, we are proud to bring this unprecedented, comprehensive photographic record of the North American Indian. Curtis and his native co-creators preserved for future generations, an important era in American history and provided a powerful opportunity to understand many elements of North American Indian experience.
This exhibit provides us with an opportunity to integrate a host of educational programs in partnership with Wisconsin Public Television. Thousands of school students are expected to visit this exhibit for a unique opportunity to experience the work of this celebrated artist.
