McNay Art Museum highlights the Native American experience in new exhibition
Silver Horn, Kiowa Dude Paying His Respects to a Young Kiowa Belle from Sketchbook, 1887. Graphite, ink, and crayon on paper. Collection of the McNay Art Museum, Gift of Mrs. Terrell Bartlett.


SAN ANTONIO, TX.- One of the rarely seen highlights of the McNay’s collection is a group of more than 70 drawings by members of the Kiowa tribe in Oklahoma. A selection of these soulful works on paper are now on view in the Charles Butt Paperworks Gallery as part of the new exhibition, We’re Still Here: Native Americans Artists, Then and Now.

The earliest of these drawings—dating to the 1880s—are by Silver Horn, perhaps the most famous of all the Kiowa artists. His art chronicles Kiowa life and culture on the Plains, particularly the population’s struggle for existence during famine and war.

“It is rare that we have a chance to see one Silver Horn drawing, so this selection of nearly 20 is a great opportunity to see and appreciate these works that not only document Native American life on the plains but are also incredibly beautiful works of art,” said Lyle Williams, McNay Curator of Prints and Drawings.

Complementing these drawings are presentations by two San Antonio artists—Joe Harjo and Ed Saavedra—whose artwork focuses on the Native American experience today. Harjo’s footprint, from his Indian Performance Prints suite, document Native Americans in our midst. Saavedra’s exquisite drawings represent the continued misappropriation of Native American identity.

This exhibition is organized by Lyle Williams, Curator of Prints and Drawings, for the McNay Art Museum. Lead funding is most generously provided by the Elizabeth Huth Coates Exhibition Endowment and the Arthur and Jane Stieren Fund for Exhibitions.

We’re still Here: Native American Artists, Then and Now is on view through August 11, 2019.
