"Continuum" is a joint project organized by Missoula Art Museum (MAM) and Salish Kootenai College. Curator Nikolyn Garner says about the exhibition, "The artists featured in this show represent diverse tribes and life experiences, both on-and-off Reservations. They utilize many techniques in the artwork and have individual voices and means of expression. Yet, they also express the connections between cultures and the continuum's that run through the contemporary experiences of all American Indians. This exhibition, "Continuum", reflects the continually developing, adapting, and exploratory voices of contemporary American Indian artists."
This exhibition is sponsored by the Montana Art Gallery Directors Association (MAGDA), a statewide service organization for non-profit museums and galleries, and supported in part by grants from the Montana Arts Council, a state agency funded by the State of Montana; Montana’s Cultural and Aesthetic Projects Trust Fund; and the National Endowment for the Arts.
