Contemporary American Indian artists examine and explore their heritage. At the same time, they live within, absorb and reflect on the larger American mass culture. Indian Territory in the West ended in 1907, when Oklahoma became the 46th state to enter the Union. Nonetheless, Indian territory as a state of mind and cultural identity remains as potent as ever and very vibrant. Selections from the museum's permanent collection reveal the range of questions, cultural myths and artistic vocabularies that contemporary American Indian artists grapple with today.
