Drawings by Frank Big Bear

Frank Big Bear is a largely self taught Native American artist who utilizes a unique style in which imagery suggests the collapsing of time and space, depicting historical events and dreams as coincidental on the picture plane. Big Bear’s intensely colored, densely illustrated color pencil drawings pull no punches about the joys and sorrows of a contemporary urban Indian’s path.

“Drawings by Frank Big Bear” was organized by the Tweed Museum of Art, University of Minnesota Duluth. The exhibit is presented in collaboration with the Purdue Native American Educational and Cultural Center.
