Virtual exhibit tour with artist Brent Learned set for Friday

Join us Friday, May 1, 2020, for a virtual tour with Brent Learned as he talks about his exhibit, “Looking Through Indian Eyes” at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center.  This tour will be live at 1 p.m. using Zoom.

Learned is a member of the Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma and native Oklahoman. He is one of our 2020 exhibitors and though we are currently closed to the public, we want people to see this show. Learned will walk through his show and visitors can ask questions about his art, through our Zoom presentation.

“I create artwork to capture the essence, accuracy, emotion and historical authenticity of the Native American Indian in a contemporary vision.”

In 2019, PBS NewsHour featured Learned and his work, which he says is his vision of remastering the great with a Native American taste.
