To support Native Prospects: Indigeneity and Landscape Painting at the Thomas Cole National Historic Site. The project presents and examines the history of the land known as the United States and as Turtle Island from an Indigenous perspective through Indigenous items of artistic and historical value that express the land; 19th-century landscape paintings by Thomas Cole, which include depictions of Native figures; and contemporary artworks by the Indigenous artists Truman Lowe (Ho-Chunk), Alan Michelson (Grand River Mohawk), and Teresa Baker (Mandan/Hidatsa). A full-color publication accompanies the exhibition.
