Join scholar Mary Peterson Zundo for a humanities lecture examining how 19th century art depicted Native American equestrianism and shaped the ways U.S. citizens and Europeans envisioned Native peoples.

The focal point for the lecture will be Snake Indians, an 1840 romantic equestrian portrait by American artist Alfred Jacob Miller (1810-1874). Miller’s painting presents a Native warrior upon a stylized Arabian steed. Attend this Gund lecture and you’ll develop new insights into fantasia portrayals of the American West and learn how art and cultural forces shaped depictions of the West and of Native peoples.

This subject will appeal to educators, art lovers and collectors, museum members, life-long learners, individuals interested in Native American and Western art, cartography, culture or history, art critics and scholars, and students studying art history, public history or anthropology.

Program included with admission to the museum.
