Captivating Cross-Cultural Dialogues


The Nerman Museum has made an extraordinary, decade-long commitment to building a major collection of contemporary Native American art with works by over 100 artists. Learn how our docents foster dialogue in critical multiculturalism. The framework includes teaching with reproductions from 19th century American art history to illuminate several commonly held stereotypes and myths about Native American culture. Join us for a walking tour of the museum galleries and adjacent campus hallways with Collection Focus Areas.

 Bus transportation is provided to and from the hotel.
