KANSAS CITY, MO. — Artists from the Plains Indian cultures of North America have long produced works of beauty, mystery and emotional power. The international traveling exhibition “The Plains Indians: Artists of Earth and Sky” features 135 of the most-important creations known. The works span more than four centuries and reveal a continuum of artistic tradition and innovation extending to the present day. Many of these great works, drawn from 58 museums and private collections in Europe and North America, are united for the first time. The creations embody Plains life, cultural values and religious traditions. They manifest, as well, profound and dynamic connections to earth and sky — the natural and spirit worlds. Transcending cultural boundaries, they communicate directly as expressions of the human spirit. Panels throughout the exhibition galleries in Kansas City chronicle the heroic story of Plains peoples and their art. The voices of historian Colin G.
