Oscar Howe Exhibit

September 3, Thu
9:00 AM - 6:00 PM

Daily, May 30 to Sept. 7, 2015 | Mon. to Sat., 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sun., 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Join us in celebration of 100 years of the brilliant and masterful work of South Dakotan and Yanktonai Dakota artist, Oscar Howe!

Oscar grew up in poverty on a reservation and was taught the rich traditions of his Dakota heritage through the wonderful and colorful stories that his grandmother told him. These stories came to be the lifelong themes for his art. Oscar used bold colors, shapes and movements in his paintings to honor and tell the stories of his culture. It was primarily through his efforts that it became acceptable for Native American artists to break away from Traditional Indian style’s to other artistic styles such as New Indian Painting. Howe’s goal was to express truths through his paintings that were once deeply personal to him and his people.

“What I hope to accomplish in my painting is satisfaction in content and form with completeness and clarity of expression, and to objectify the truths in Dakota culture and present them in an artistic way” - Oscar Howe, 1969 He is one of the most recognized and respected Native American artists of our time.

Exhibit is included in the price of admission to The Journey Museum.
