Contemporary Artists in the Peabody Museum Lewis Clark Exhibition

This section features works by three of the contemporary Native American artists who participated in researching, interpreting, writing about, and exhibiting the museum's Lewis and Clark project. Two of them—Butch Thunder Hawk and Jo Esther Parshall—also contributed to the Monticello-Peabody Native Arts Project, during which they studied historic objects at the Peabody and created new works for Thomas Jefferson's "Indian Hall" at his home, Monticello.
