Many Visions, Many Versions: Art from Indigenous Communities in India

Explore the breadth of India’s cultural life and heritage through contemporary artwork from four indigenous artistic traditions. From central India’s Gond and Warli communities, the Mithila region of Bihar and the narrative scroll painters of West Bengal, more than 40 paintings and drawings feature dazzling patterns, vibrant colors and nonlinear storytelling.

From the Museum’s Collection

“Art of the Hunt

Hunting is deeply rooted in human culture, extending over all seven continents. Through the work of painters, sculptors and graphic artists dating from the early 19th century into the 21st century, the changing role of birds and animals within the context of the hunt is illustrated and celebrated.

Deceptive Surfaces

Carved and painted with a keen eye for ornithological details that convey the behavior, personality and coloration of birds, these decorative wood sculptures often fool the eye, appearing real. From John Scheeler’s pale-colored mourning doves to Ma Hai Feng’s brilliant yellow and green budgerigar, these realistic sculptures seem poised for flight.

Cast, Carved & Cut

Twenty small-scale sculptures from the museum’s collection can be viewed and studied in a specially designed case in the lower level.

Museum closed on July 4.

The Woodson is at 700 N. 12th St., Wausau.
