Itching to see some Native American art and can't wait for the FAC's April show "Honoring A Legacy: Selections From The Taylor Museum Collection Of Native American Works"? Our April show will display key Plains Indians objects from Taylor Museum's Permanent Collection, but for a different perspective, you can hop on over to "Indian Corner", the new exhibit at at I.D.E.A. Space at Colorado College.

"Indian Corner" is held with guest curator Wendy Red Star to compare authentic Native American objects that remain within the tribe, versus commercially-produced kitsch objects destined for tourist trade. Kitsch objects include drums, axes, Kachina dolls, among many others. I.D.E.A. is displaying over 40 objects from the FAC's Permanent Collection -- giving you an chance to view objects that aren't currently on display at the Museum.

Wendy Red Star is the niece of acclaimed American/Crow Artist, Kevin Red Star. Kevin Red Star's painting "Tranquility" is on display as part of the 75th Anniversary exhibit on the first-floor FAC galleries.

I.D.E.A. Space is open Tues-Sat 12:30 p.m. - 7 p.m.
