Funk Heritage Center Art Collections
The Rogers Contemporary Native American Art Gallery
This exhibit includes paintings, sculptures and other creative works by Native American artists. All of the Items in this gallery were donated by Clarence and Margaret Rogers and they are always on display. These works of art represent the talents of many people with a ride range of styles and subjects. A majority of these works were created by descendants of the Southeastern Indians, many of whom now live in west of the Mississippi due to the removal of their ancestors during the Trail of Tears in the 1800's.
