"About 15,000 years," explains Jennifer Complo McNutt, curator of contemporary art at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art in downtown Indianapolis. The documentary NATIVE ART NOW! examines the evolution of Native contemporary art over the last 25 years, presenting personal perspectives from internationally acclaimed Native modern artists. Installations, paintings, photographs, prints, sculptures,...
