About Dogs: Faithful and True

A new featured exhibition at the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis in 2017 will explore the fascinating stories of dogs in Native American cultures and the West. Opening March 4, Dogs: Faithful and True is a five-month-long celebration and examination of dogs as workers, companions and heroes. Historic and contemporary paintings, sculptures, weavings, photographs and artifacts about the bond between dogs and people in the West and Native American cultures will be highlighted during the multifaceted exhibition, along with numerous demonstrations and visitor activities, including some outdoor programs that dogs can attend with their owners. Among the striking art works in the exhibition are paintings and sculpture by renowned Western artists such as Charlie Russell, Native American artifacts such as colorful and elaborate Cree dog blankets and impressive black-and-white images of working dogs by contemporary photographer Michael Crowser.
