Family Album: Photographs by Pierre Tartoue exhibit opens

May 21, 2022

Event Navigation

On Saturday, May 21, the Pawnee Bill Ranch and Museum will open the OHS traveling exhibit Family Album: Photographs by Pierre Tartoue.

Pierre Tartoue (1885–1976) was born in the harbor town of Saint-Nazaire on the western shores of France and, in his lifetime, made his way across most of the continental United States. From the late 1930s to the early 1950s he spent most of his time in Oklahoma, painting and producing photographs that bore witness to a tremendous renaissance in Indigenous communities, including the emergence of large intertribal expositions and sacred gatherings. This rebirth would not have been possible without strong multigenerational Indigenous families. This exhibit was curated by Matt Reed and Jacquelyn Sparks.

The exhibit will be on display at the Pawnee Bill Ranch and Museum until Sunday, July 31.
