Crossing Cultures at the Toledo Art Museum

Crossing Cultures: The Owen and Wagner Collection of Contemporary Aboriginal Australian Art at the Hood Museum of Art features more than 120 works of indigenous art from Australia in the collection of the Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth College. Spanning five decades of creative activity, the works were produced by artists from outback communities as well as major metropolitan centers. They represent the many art-making practices of Aboriginal peoples across the Australian continent, including acrylic paintings on linen and canvas, earthen ochre paintings on bark, and sculpture in a variety of media.
