Plains Art Museum is saddened to hear of the passing of Truman Lowe. Truman Lowe was a sculptor and installation artist from the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin, professor emeritus of art at the University of Wisconsin and a former curator of contemporary art for the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian. Mr. Lowe joined Plains Art Museum in February 2017 for the exhibition “Cultural Confluences,” which was installed for most of that year. With a modernist sensibility, his work explored the stories and experiences of Native peoples – embracing historically traditional works and addressing the disappearance of cultures. Mr. Lowe’s legacy and art will ensure the past is present and Native perspective is vital to where we are today. Plains Art Museum extends its deepest condolences to Mr. Lowe’s family and its deepest gratitude to Mr. Lowe for sharing with all of us his unique and wonderful vision.
