Hundreds of American Indian dancers, artists, performers and tribal members, plus supporters and fans of American Indian art and culture, converged on Oklahoma City over the weekend for the 26th Annual Red Earth Native American Cultural Festival. Check out this NewsOK video of some Red Earth highlights.
Although the festival is over for another year, one aspect is continuing throughout the summer: the inaugural Red Earth Invitational Sculpture Exhibit at the Myriad Botanical Gardens.
On view through Sept. 9, the exhibit includes a range of works, from classical to abstract, created by Native American artists Denny Haskew, Enoch Kelly Haney, Janice Albro, Troy Anderson, Shan Gray, Clancy Gray, Gordon Tonips and others. The sculptures are installed in the Meinders Garden in the northeast corner of the Myriad Gardens and inside the visitors center on the south end of the Crystal Bridge Tropical Observatory.
Admission to the exhibit is free.
The exhibition is a partnership between the Myriad Gardens and Red Earth Inc. All works are for sale and proceeds benefit the Myriad Gardens Foundation, Red Earth Museum and the artists, according to a news release.
