George Morrison ’43 is being recognized for his groundbreaking work at the Minneapolis Institute of Art in the George Morrison: Drawings and Small Painting and George Morrison in Focus exhibits. The George Morrison in Focus exhibition also features a newly acquired piece by Andrea Carlson ’05, MFA, who received encouragement from Morrison early on; it will be on view for the first time.

According to Mia, these two exhibits "re-examine Morrison’s life and legacy with new installations of his work outside the Native American galleries where it has typically been shown. George Morrison: Drawings and Small Paintings shows twenty-two of his works from Mia’s collection, including ten recent gifts. George Morrison in Focus places a newly conserved Morrison painting from 1960 alongside the work of artists he knew and exhibited with in the 1950s and ’60s, reconnecting him to the scene he both embraced and eschewed."
