The result of a major reinstallation in 2016, Native Artists of North America displays more than 100 outstanding works from the Museum’s collection, dating from the late 18th century to the present.

Collaboratively curated by a team of Native American artists and scholars, Native Artists of North America reflects the expertise and talent of leading specialists in the field of Indigenous art today. Located at the entrance to the American art galleries, and with a commissioned, site-specific work by Jeffrey Gibson (Mississippi Choctaw-Cherokee) at its heart, this long-term installation  positions Indigenous art as an integral part of American art.
