Cyrus Dallin produced many sculptures of Native Americans during his career of more than fifty years. From his initial experience with the American Indians on the frontier of the Utah Territory, to his Parisian encounter with the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show, to his many years of advocacy for their fair treatment, he always saw them as people. Nothing less. Come see a visual presentation of Dallin's sculptures of Native American figures, learn how they compared to those of his contemporaries, and find out why he chose these figures for his sculpture. The museum galleries will be open starting at 6:30 P.M.
