SIOUX CITY -- A retrospective of a prominent Winnebago artist's works is featured in the new exhibit, "Native American Artwork featuring Chuck Raymond.” The exhibit opened Jan. 20 at the Sioux City Public Museum.
Included in the exhibit are Raymond’s black-and-white Northeast Woodland/Great Plains series along with his rarely seen black-and-white Southwest/Northwest Coast series.
The exhibit also showcases a selection of Native American artifacts that complement Raymond's artwork. Rare pieces like an Ojibwa bandolier bag and a Lakota buffalo hide berry bowl featured in Raymond's drawings are on display.
For more than 30 years, Raymond was one of Siouxland’s most respected artists, creating works for public display throughout the community. During the 1960s, the Sioux City Public Museum commissioned Raymond to create drawings of Native American life featuring objects in the museum’s collection.
The exhibit will be on display through 2018 at the museum, 607 Fourth St. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 1 to 5 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call 712-279-6174 or visit www.siouxcitymuseum.org.
