Oklahoma History Center exhibits curator Tara Damron (Osage) is on this week’s show to discuss the 11-month-long exhibit of Citizen Potawatomi Nation artist Woody Crumbo’s work that will open on June 28, 2012. Damron says the exhibit will be refreshed several times during its run, allowing people interested in Crumbo art an opportunity to experience more of his work. She says the exhibit will also feature many of the articles Mr. Crumbo used as subjects of his paintings.
Woody Crumbo was born on January 31, 1912 in Lexington, Oklahoma and passed in 1989. He is considered one of the most important American Indian artists of the 20th century.
