Indian Art Exhibit
At Chappell House
"American Indian Art Before 1850," a major exhibition is opened in May and will continue through September 19 at the Denver Art Museum's Chappell House, 1300 ifiogan Street on Capitol Hill. ; This will be the first time that an entire exhibit has ever, been devoted to early' Indian material of the pre-camera period. Such early material is not common, and generally each museum has only a few dozen pieces. Nonnan Feder, Curator oh American IrP diari and Native Arts Department, assembled the exhibition, personally selecting the choice and rare specimens which were borrowed from fourteen leading museums plus notable private collections. Among museums lending objects are the United States National Museum, the American Museum of Natural History, the Museum of the American Indian-Heye Foundation, and the Peabody Museums of Cambridge and Salem.
The year 1850 was chosen as the terminal date of the show because it was before the days of the camera, before Colorado statehood, and because it marked'the beginning of westward expansion brought on by the California Gold Rush. In fact, before 1850, the only people in the western United States were, a few Spanisr settlers in the Southwest and the fur traders trading for beaver before 1832 and for buffalo up to about 1860. The major portion of the West was little known and hot settled.
The exhibition' will, demonstrate that American Indians, using the limited,- natural material ayq^lafele',,. w;ere able" to develop an. elaborate.' and colorful decorative brh. ,
The exhibition which should have great appeal hot only to all Rocky Mountain residents, but also to summer tourists, is open to the public free, of charge during' .the following hours: Sundays, 2 to 5; Mondays, 1 to 5; Tuesdays through Saturdays, 9 to 5. Exceptions are holidays: July 4, when the Museum will be closed all day; and Memorial Day and Labor Day, when the hours are 2 to 5 p. m.
hoped that they will stay for the-full ten months training, and this can be extended to as much as two years. During the training period, $50 per month is set aside in savings for each girl, and she also receives $30 per month for personal expenses.
In Denver, an office of Women in Community Service, Inc., has been opened as the. Job Corps screening center for girls, at 910' 16th Street, Room 511. This office is sponsored by four national women's organizations. Girls age 16 through 21 are invited to phone the office623-4349for further information. Volunteers of WICS will arrange an interview in the home to explain the program.
