About Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art
Since its opening in 1989, this institution's mission has been to inspire an appreciation for the art, history, and cultures of the American West as well as the indigenous peoples of North America. Through exhibitions, educational programs, cultural exchanges, and special events the museum is an ever-growing locus helping to keep Native American culture alive. Located within the White River State Park, the Eiteljorg Museum holds the largest collection of contemporary Native American fine art in the country and nurtures these artists with its unique Fellowship for Native American Fine Art. Stop by and take the time to enjoy a collection that includes pieces by N. C. Wyeth, Andy Warhol, Georgia O’Keeffe, Frederic Remington, Charles Russell, and Kay WalkingStick just to name a few. The new Western Gallery reopens in November after extensive renovation and the compelling Reel West exhibit, a look at Hollywood’s obsession with cowboys and Indians, runs through the end of January.
