Smithsonian exhibit to feature Native artwork from Black Hills


Martin E. Red Bear has dabbled in art since the 1970s, and part of what drives him is a yearning to leave something behind for future generations.

“Other people record history in writing, we do ours in pictures," Red Bear said. "I think that is just as important as a person who does it in writing."

The rich histories and traditions of narrative art among people in the Great Plains are the subject of a new national art exhibit. Five Rapid City area artists, including Red Bear, will have their artwork featured in the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian in New York City.
