Native Art Now Exhibit at the Eiteljorg Museum

A contemporary Native art collection, Native Art Now, is on display at The Eiteljorg Museum through January 28. Thirty-nine iconic arts are featured in the exhibit, including paintings, prints, sculptures, fabric art, installations, sculptures and glass. Once it closes in late January, it will travel to other institutions nationwide.

The exhibit’s intention is to “encourage appreciation for today’s Native artists, and consider the future of the contemporary Native art field.”

In addition, both a coffee tablestyle book called Native Art Now and TV documentary have been made to complement the exhibit. The book is in full color with images from the exhibit plus more and is on sale currently at the museum store.

The one-hour TV documentary was produced by WFYI and was initially broadcast in mid-December. It includes a sharing of personal perspectives from featured artists and scholars about the development of Native art during the last 30 years. There’ll be repeat showings with dates to be announced by the museum.

The Eiteljorg is a museum of the art history and culture of Native Americans and other Natives of the American West. Museum exhibits include art objects from the 1800s to the present.

Admission: $13/adults, $11/seniors, $7/ ages 5-17; children age 4 and under/ free. Location: 500 West Washington St., Indianapolis. For more information, call 317-636-9378 or visit
