Join us for an introductory guided tour of Past Forward: Native American Art from Gilcrease Museum led by Peter Nisbet, Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs and on-site curator for Past Forward. We’ll get an up-close look at the highlights of this expansive exhibition of Native American Art and the four thought-provoking themes that they are presented within: ceremony, sovereignty, visual abstraction, and identity.
