Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center Exhibit

From 1907 to 1930 photographer Edward S. Curtis took on the colossal task of documenting the Native tribes of North America. The resulting work, The North American Indian, contains twenty volumes of photographs and ethnographic text. The Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center will recognize the 150th anniversary of Edward Curtis’ birth by presenting an exhibition displaying images selected from Volumes 7 and 8 of Curtis’ portfolio along with interpretive text panels, an exhibit guide and relevant displays from the museum’s collection and loans from private parties. The images used in this exhibit have been graciously provided by the Harriet Bullett and the Seattle Public Library.
