This 1992 bold bronze piece, titled "Abstract Crown Dancer I," by Allan Houser, is slated to be part of an exhibition this spring on campus at Dartmouth College in Hanover. Houser (1914-1994) was one of the major figures in native American art of the 20th century. The sculptor, painter and draftsman often drew on his Chiricahua Apache heritage. He worked in a variety of media, including bronze, stone and steel. Dartmouth will mark the centennial of his birth with an installation of five sculptural works in the Maffei Arts Plaza and the Hood Museum of Art gateway in May, as well as a fall exhibition of drawings in the Strauss Gallery at the Hopkins Center for the Arts.
