The Tbilisi History Museum Caravansary (Georgian National Museum), the State Silk Museum and the Art Palace of Georgia are showcasing The North American Indian: Motherland, Lifestyle, Spirituality, an exhibition in three parts. The displays at each venue reflect a different aspect of Native American life which Curtis captured — a changing homeland (GNM), daily life (State Silk Museum), and the creative expression of spiritual beliefs (Art Palace of Georgia).

 

The photographs on display are copies from the collections of the Prints and Photographs Division in the Library of Congress, Washington, DC, where the originals are preserved.

 

The current exhibitions were organized as a cooperative effort by the three Georgian museums. We gratefully acknowledge the generous support of the United States Embassy to Georgia, Georgian National Museum, the Art Palace of Georgia, Adjara Group HospitalityGeorgian-American University and the Library of Congress for making these exhibitions possible
