About the Exhibit
Curated by Grace Siloti, this exhibition showcases Paul Surber’s oil and acrylic representations of Western Plains Indian Tribes in the 1800s to early 1900s. Mr. Surber has made a lifetime study of Native American culture and authentic tribal wear, and he represents it with his contemporary aesthetics. This exhibition will help young and old visually relate to the different tribes and their customs, expressed with colors and designs created with feathers, trade, beads, and different animal furs and bones, which were used for many occasions.
