Allan Houser bronze sculpture exhibit on display at Denver Botanic Gardens

Denver Botanic Gardens will take a year-long look at modern, contemporary and traditional American Indian arts. The centerpiece is the Gardens’ outdoor sculpture exhibit, Native Roots/Modern Form: Plants, Peoples and the Art of Allan Houser, on view at the Gardens now through November 13.

The show features more than 20 bronze works created by American modernist Allan Houser (Warm Springs Chiricahua Apache, 1914–1994). This pioneering 20th century personality opened doors for future generations of Native artists, and is one of the most important American artists of the 20th Century.

The Gardens also is offering many related exhibitions and programs for adults, families and youth, including guided tours, workshops and a monthly film series highlighting indigenous voices and issues.
