Identity and Inspiration

Identity & Inspiration, currently on view at the Philbrook Museum of Art, features nearly 200 objects that reflect the motivations influencing the artists’ creative processes, from the desire to preserve tribal traditions to incorporating new materials and producing work for new audiences. Other influences include the challenge to push boundaries by generating innovative forms and designs, and incorporating movements like Pop Art and even social commentary in their pieces. Throughout the exhibition of exceptional works of art, the focus is on the individual artists who are inspired by a various sources, and who in turn inspire us through their creativity and virtuosity.
