Vantage Point highlights the National Museum of the American Indian's young but vital collection of contemporary art, with significant works by 25 artists in media ranging from paintings, drawings, and photography to video projection and mixed-media installation. These complex and richly layered works speak to the concerns and experiences of Native people today, addressing memory, history, the significance of place for Native communities, and the continuing relevance of cultural traditions. The artists featured include Marie Watt (Seneca), James Lavadour (Walla Walla), Alan Michelson (Mohawk), and Truman Lowe (Ho-Chunk).
