BESIDE THE BIG RIVER: IMAGES AND ART OF THE MID-COLUMBIAN INDIANS
March 15 - May 28, 2012
10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Maryhill Museum of Art
The Middle Columbia River region extends nearly 200 miles from the mouth of the Snake River to present-day Bonneville Dam. Between 1900 and the late 1950s, three photographers—Lee Moorhouse, Thomas H. Rutter and J.W. Thompson—captured nearly 6,000 images of Indian life along this section of river. “Beside the Big River: Images and Art of the Mid-Columbia Indians” presents 40 of their photographs and select examples of regional American Indian art.
