To support Unbound: Narrative Art of the Plains at the National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI). The exhibition traces Indigenous narrative art from historic hides, muslins, and ledger books to new works commissioned by the National Museum of the American Indian. Organized by curator Emil Her Many Horses (Oglala Lakota), the exhibition is an example of the cultural value and importance found within NMAI’s permanent collection. Unbound provides in-depth interactive opportunities for visitors to explore individual artworks and artists. To encourage even greater audience engagement, the exhibition features a robust schedule of public programs and an audio tour featuring Native artists’ perspectives in English, Spanish, and Indigenous languages. A companion exhibition catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
