American Indian Imagery: Western Art and Its Influence in Pop Culture
Join Miranda Murray and Jordann Forster of Bright Trail Education for an interactive gallery walk and presentation through the work of Andy Warhol’s series “Cowboys and Indian”. Participants will analyze imagery of American Indian people and objects used in the context of pop art. Viewers will apply these ideas to other western artworks currently on display at the C. M. Russell Museum including the work of Billie Schenck and Charles M. Russell. Taking a look at the implications of this use of imagery in contemporary pop and western art will give the audience a better understanding of the work viewed so prominently in Montana.
Due to construction, please park on 4th Avenue North and enter the museum via the south entrance between the House and Studio.
