NEW ULM — The Grand Center for Arts and Culture will be displaying a select group of 55 photographs from the Edward Curtis collection. Between 1907 and 1930, Curtis recorded the lives, language, and ceremony of over 80 North American tribes before forced assimilation changed it. Although the photographs have been challenged as an idealized vision, the scholarship of his work has been a source for reclaiming tribal heritage. These photographs, which are digital representations of the originals, are on loan from The Montgomery Arts and Heritage Center. These historical photographs will be at the 4 Pillars Art Gallery beginning Saturday, January 16. Our opening reception will be held VIRTUALLY on January 15 at 5 p.m. Go to The Grand’s Facebook page to watch.
