In Their Honor

In Their Honor

Open Now - April 22, 2018

The exhibition entitled In Their Honor pays homage to the five Eiteljorg Fellows who have passed away: Allan Houser (Warm Springs Chiricahua Apache, 1914—1994), George Morrison (Grand Portage Band Ojibwe, 1919—2000), Harry Fonseca (Nisenan Maidu/Hawaiian, 1946—2006), John Hoover (Aleut, 1919—2011), and Rick Bartow (Mad River Wiyot, 1946—2016).

All five were role models and inspirations for generations of artists. All five are greatly loved and sorely missed by students, colleagues, friends, family, and the contemporary Native art world. They forged paths and passages into the art world, museums, universities, and places previously unknown to Native artists.

This exhibition, therefore, celebrates their legacy. Several original works of art have never been on exhibit before. And some were generously donated by the artists, as well as Charles Froelick, a close friend of Rick Bartow, and Harry Nungesser, Harry Fonseca’s former partner. In Their Honor closes on April 22, 2018.
