Event Description

Kasebier's portraits of the Sioux performers in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Shows were made in 1898. The Northwest Museum in Spokane, Washington, USA is one of only two museums to show the works this year, before they are "permanently" retired to the Smithsonian due to fragile print condition. The show is running now through February 9, along with a companion show called "Plateau Portraits: The Photographs of Richard Lewis", which feature individuals of the Plateau American Indian tribes taken in the 1930s and 1940s, and an exhibit on Scottish naturalist David Douglas.
