“Picturing History: Ledger Drawings of the Plains Indians” features a collection of drawings chronicling battles, rituals and events of everyday life from artists from the Plains Indian peoples (Lakota, Cheyenne, Arapaho and others dwelling in the Western United States and Canada). These drawings, known as Ledger Drawings, are striking images done with ink, graphite, and pencil and watercolor. Following a long tradition of picture narratives, these drawn stories range from flat, stylized forms to lyrical, rhythmic movement. For more info visit the Fairfield University Art Museum website.
