General Overview

The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art in Indianapolis is as much about people as it is about art. Through exhibitions, hands-on workshops with artists and interaction with members of this country’s earliest cultures, the Eiteljorg Museum immerses visitors in the indigenous cultures of the American West and Native America – the only museum in the Midwest to offer this combination.

Special Collections and Exhibits

The Eiteljorg is the only museum in the Midwest to combine collections of American Western art and Native American art and objects. The highlight of the collection is works by members of the Taos (New Mexico) Society of Artists, such as Blumenschein, Phillips and others, as well as such artists as Remington, Russell, O’Keefe, Terpning and Riley. The Native American collection presents the art of cultural groups from coast to coast and includes pottery, basketry, woodcarvings, beadwork, apparel and more. A special permanent gallery is devoted to the Native peoples of Indiana.

Mission

The mission of the Eiteljorg Museum is to inspire an appreciation and understanding of the art, history and cultures of the American West and the indigenous peoples of North America. The Eiteljorg Museum collects and preserves Western art and Native American art and cultural objects of the highest quality, and serves the public through engaging exhibitions, educational programs, cultural exchanges and entertaining special events.
