Woody Crumbo is considered one of the most notable artists to have come from a period of Native American painting widely considered its “golden age.” Gilcrease Museum brings back the era with a new exhibit featuring 55 works by the multifaceted artist. Bending, Weaving, Dancing: The Art of Woody Crumbo, which opens Feb. 24, notably includes 55 original paintings in Crumbo’s unmistakably striking style, many of which have not been seen for more than a quarter of a century. The Oklahoma artist who taught at Muskogee's Bacone College and also served as an artist-in-residence at Gilcrease used his work to emphasize traditional spirituality while he evolved his approach to art into a dynamic representation of the culture he was eager to record. Also look for the companion book Woody Crumbo, available at the museum, 1400 N. Gilcrease Road. Admission is $5-$8.
