BOZEMAN – Joe D. Horse Capture, an associate curator for the Smithsonian Institution at the National Museum of the American Indian, will give a lecture at Museum of the Rockies on Tuesday, March 31, as part of Montana State University’s President’s Fine Art Series.
The free lecture, which begins at 7 p.m. in the Hagar Auditorium and is entitled “#Tradish: Concepts and Continuity of Plains Indian Art,” continues this year’s series, entitled "Creative Nations," which celebrates Native American art and creativity.
Horse Capture is an MSU alumnus and a member of the A’aninin (Gros Ventre) Tribe. He spent 15 years in Minneapolis, where he was the first Native American curator at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. While there he took what was once a token collection of American Indian art and helped expand and reposition it as a key attraction in a suite of galleries next to the museum’s special exhibits.
