Final Days to View Exhibition at UW Art Museum
August 9, 2012 — The final day to see the University of Wyoming Art Museum exhibition "Drawn from Life: Northern Plains Indian Portraits by David Humphreys Miller” is Saturday, Aug. 11.
Located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Drive in Laramie, the museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free.
In 1935, at the age of 16, Miller (American, 1918-1992) arrived in South Dakota. There, he began interviewing and drawing the Northern Plains Indians who were at the Battle of Little Bighorn. In all, he sketched and painted 72 portraits of the various survivors, and captured valuable testimony. The exhibition presents more than 60 of his field sketches and studio easel paintings.
“Imagine learning from the masters” is a guiding principle of the UW Art Museum’s programs.
