Edward Curtis Exhibit
From 1907 to 1930 photographer Edward Curtis took on the colossal task of documenting the remaining intact Native American tribes of the American West. The resulting portfolio, The North American Indian, contains twenty volumes of photographs and ethnographic text. This can be seen as a wealth of information for the tribes recorded in each volume. The Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center will recognize the 150th anniversary of Edward Curtis’ birth by presenting an exhibition focusing on the bond between Native Americans and their environment and how this has changed over time.
This featured exhibit will fill the Main Gallery with a representative selection of photographic prints from Volumes 7 and 8 of The North American Indian along with interpretive text panels and relevant displays on loan from private collections.
