DESCRIPTION

The Frost Art Museum and The Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum of the Seminole Tribe of Florida merge Native American portraiture with Native American ethnographic materials in a historic exhibition. Over 150 years of portraits of Seminole leaders and tribal members by George Catlin, Edward Curtis and other noted nineteenth and twentieth-century artists will be featured. The artwork of prominent Seminole artists will illustrate the pride and vision of their heritage as a reflection of historical images and how their significance is transformed for the present. Traditional regalia, including pieces attributed to Osceola and other Seminoles will be exhibited with artwork from the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the National Portrait Gallery, and the National Museum of the American Indian, along with the National Gallery of Art and collections from the two host museums. Curated by Annette B. Fromm. The presentation of Reflections Across Time: Seminole Portraits at the Frost Art Museum received support from Funding Arts Network, Inc.
