Traditional Native American art makes up the greatest portion of the collection, with all of the North American Indian culture areas represented.

The Art and Artifacts of War: Shielding the Self and Spirit
This exhibit will focus on individual artifacts that span cultures and time, from lithics to forged steel, from fabric to paper. We aim to display these artifacts of war embellished with art that hold symbols of deeply held beliefs inscribed in shape and design, images and words.
