The art collections held by UCO are rich with works by some of the most influential Native American artists. Many of the artists on display helped shape the Native American Fine Arts Movement of the twentieth century influencing future generations of Native American Artists. Native American art has always been deeply connected to the spiritual and natural but has evolved from the decorative, utilitarian, and ritualistic art of ledger drawings to rich, vibrant often ironic contemporary modern art.
