Additional Details

This is generally regarded as the first major exhibition of American Indian art, as opposed to an anthropological collection of curios. The poster features a piece by one of the exhibited artists, Oqwa Pi (1899-1971), also known as Abel Sanchez, from the San Ildefonso Pueblo in New Mexico.
