Seldom seen drawings by a famous Crow chief will be  on display starting next week on the MSUB campus.

“The drawings themselves are very unique and have rarely shown, specifically the drawings by Medicine Crow that are held in the MSUB Library,” said Dr. Leanne Gilbertston,  director of the Northcutt-Steele Gallery and art professor.

The Medicine Crow drawings will be combined with contemporary art by present day Crow/Apsa'alooke artist  Wendy Red Star, for an unusual exhibit.
