Gallery Conversation » Portrait of John Ridge by Charles Bird King
Before attending the evening performance of Sovereignty, a play by Mary Kathryn Nagle in our Great Hall, join us for a conversation in the galleries with Crystal Bridges Curator Mindy Besaw and Art Bridges Assistant Curator Ashley Holland on European depictions of Indigenous peoples, including Portrait of John Ridge by Charles Bird King. In this conversation, the curators will explore the historical context for the creation of such works as well as issues of Indigenous agency and visual sovereignty.
This program is supported by the Arkansas Stories humanities committee as a part of their two-year series Arkansas Stories of Place and Belonging.
