Aspaalooke, or Crow Indian, artistic choices reveal the incorporation of new materials and methods into tribal life. Art & Adaptation: Transforming Art Among the Apsaalooke explores these artistic changes, and their inspirations, through the eyes of contemporary Apsaalooke artists. Both visual and performance art are included in this exhibit.
The exhibit includes objects from the Chief Plenty Coups State Park, MSU Billings Special Collections, Montana Audubon Center, and Western Heritage Center collections. Special thanks to Chief Plenty Coups State Park, Humanities Montana, Public Value Partnerships and Montana Arts Council, MSU Billings Special Collections, Mardell Plainfeather, Amberly Whiteman, and Adrian Heidenreich for their support and guidance.
