More than 25 photogravures by American photographer Edward S. Curtis (1868–1952) featuring some of the most compelling and evocative images of early 20th century Native America are on view in this special exhibition. Drawn from the John Work Garrett Library’s rare, complete set of Curtis’ 20-volume masterpiece, The North American Indian, the exhibition provides a broad survey of Curtis’ monumental project and traces his career over the three decades of its production.

Originally organized by Shannon Egan PhD ’06 for the Gettysburg College Art Gallery, the exhibition has been adapted and expanded by Evergreen Museum & Library for its Baltimore presentation. It is made possible by the Evergreen House Foundation and the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency dedicated to cultivating a vibrant cultural community where the arts thrive.
