Here Now: Indigenous Arts of North America at the Denver Art Museum features 200 of the museum’s most notable Indigenous artworks. It reinterprets the collection and reveals new insights into the historic and contemporary work of Indigenous artists. Contributions by Indigenous authors reflect on the collection and current issues.

The expansive volume is for both new and established audiences. The artworks – from ancient Puebloan and Ississippian ceramics to nineteenth-century beaded garments and carved masks to cutting-edge contemporary paintings, sculpture, photography and variable media art – are organized geographically, inviting readers to make connections to the peoples who historically inhabited a place. The collection illustrates the multi-faceted nature of Native experiences and represents the Indigenous arts of North America as a vibrant continuum.
