In Native American art, every color, line, and symbol is intentional and represents something bigger than the art piece. "Contemporary Canvases of Native Nations" celebrates Native artists of Wisconsin and their rich traditions.

Learn about the tribes of Wisconsin and their styles, methods, and techniques. "Contemporary Canvases" is developed by the 2015 Exhibit Interns of the Wisconsin Historical Museum.
