Apsáalooke Women and Warriors

See the exhibition: Virtual Tour

Apsáalooke Women and Warriors, jointly organized by the Field Museum and the Neubauer Collegium, showcases the art and culture of the Apsáalooke people—and provides a model for cultural stewardship in partnership with communities. For the Neubauer Collegium site, Apsáalooke scholar and curator Nina Sanders transformed the gallery into an intimate space incorporating historical objects as well as paintings, fashion designs, and beadwork by contemporary Apsáalooke artists. View highlights from the exhibition >
