“Looking Through Indian Eyes” will feature the art of Brent Learned, who is a member of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma. The show is April 2 – June 30, 2020, at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center in Duncan, OK.
Learned, an Oklahoma City artist, wants people to realize after seeing his art that Native Americans still exist and they have stories to tell. He uses bold colors to tell his stories through paintings. Learn more about his work in this PBS News Hour article: https://to.pbs.org/2OtHMJF
