Native American Galleries Reinstallation: The Great Lakes Initiative and The Nations Within

The purchase and installation of modular glass object casework to display approximately 1,000 artifacts and works of art in newly re-conceived and installed Native American galleries.

The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art requests a $300,000 direct challenge grant to be matched by $900,000 to support the complete reinstallation of the Native American galleries and the Great Lakes Initiative. This three year challenge grant will support essential components of the Eiteljorg’s new approach to voice, exhibitions and engagement, which lays the groundwork for long-term relationship and audience development. The 11,000 square foot gallery space will be dynamic, flexible, changing, interactive and lively spaces featuring state-of-the-art design combining customary and contemporary art, graphics, video, state-of-the-art casework, interactives, interpretive media and innovative technologies. Great Lakes tribal member partners are essential to this new direction.
