American Indian Art: The Collecting Experience : Elvehjem Museum of Art, University of Wisconsin-Madison, May 7-July 3, 1988
Even the earliest European explorers to the Americas collected objects made by native people. The ongoing fascination with the artistic and cultural expressions of American Indian people is documented historically, along with a close look at seven midwestern collections. The wide array of art encompassed is handsomely illustrated, and includes pottery, weavings, basketry, beadwork, and carvings.
