Event Details

Since 2010, Maryhill Museum’s collection of contemporary Indigenous art has greatly expanded. The museum is now home to more than 60 works by regional artists that include Rick Bartow (Wiyot), Lillian Pitt (Warm Springs/Wasco/Yakama), and Joe Feddersen (Okanagan and Arrow Lakes). Diné (Navajo) artists Shonto Begay, Marwin Begaye, and Will Wilson are also represented in the collection, as are Cara Romero (Chemehuevi) and Merlin Little Thunder (Southern Cheyenne). Northwest/Southwest draws on this work and select loans from public and private collections to present an overview of some of the diverse expressions that have been produced in the Indigenous community during the last four decades.
