The Southwest In Motion
The Southwest in Motion: Navajo, Pueblo and Hopi Paintings from the Charles Little Collection
June 11, 2019 - September 14, 2019
The Southwest in Motion invited visitors to discover the complex relationship between culture, place, resistance, and survival in the Southwest. Curated by OSU students working with Trever Lee Holland and Louise Siddons, with the help of community members from across Oklahoma the show is an opportunity to consider how artworks themselves are often in motion—traveling from artist, to collector, to museum.
In 2016, Charles Little, former OSU faculty member in agriculture economics, gifted the Museum more than 1,000 works of Native American Art. Now residing in North Carolina, Mr. Little frequently attended the Red Earth Festival where he further pursued his interest in Native American Art. Little's collection spans from the 1930s to present with a focus in Plains and Southwest paintings.
