American Indian Art from the Fenimore Art Museum: The Thaw Collection celebrates the great achievements of North America’s first artists and attests to the long-standing excellence of the aesthetic traditions of North America’s Native peoples. Spanning the continent from the first millennium to the 20th century, the exhibition of more than 35 exceptional objects showcases indigenous masterpieces in various media—sculpture, painting, drawing, basketry, textiles, ceramics, and decorative arts.  

The exhibition is on view from October 13 - December 30 and was organized by the Fenimore Art Museum, Cooperstown, New York, in collaboration with the Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute. It is supported by a generous grant from the Eugene V. & Clare E. Thaw Charitable Trust.
