Husband St.  The Southwest in Motion invites visitors to discover the complex relationship between culture, place, resistance, and survival in the Southwest.  Curated by OSU students working with Trever Lee Holland and Louise Siddons, with the help of community members from across Oklahoma the show is an opportunity to consider how artworks themselves are often in motion—traveling from artist, to collector, to museum.  In 2016, Charles Little, former OSU faculty member in agriculture economics, gifted the Museum over 1,000 works of Native American Art.  Now residing in North Carolina, Mr. Little frequently attended the Red Earth Festival where he further pursued his interest in Native American Art.  Little's collection spans from the 1930s to present with a focus in Plains and Southwest paintings.  Curated by Trever Lee Holland, OSU Visiting Professor in American & Native Literature and Louise Siddons, OSU Associate Professor in Art History.  Student curators are Roxanne Beason, Calli Heflin, Katelynn Pipestem, Chestiké Williams, and Amanda Zimmerman.  Exhibit on display through September 14, 2019.
