    For this program, Museum Director Todd Tubutis will lead an exploration of the Museum’s recently acquired photographs by Wendy Red Star. Red Star, is an Apsáalooke (Crow) artist, and an important figure in contemporary Native American photography. Her Four Seasons series depicts her in traditional dress posed against vividly-colored artificial backdrops. They have the potential to stimulate powerful conversations about Native American representation and history.
