Autry Museum of the American West

Nancy Foster

The Autry Museum of the American West brings together the stories of all peoples of the American West, connecting the past with the present to inspire our shared future. The Autry features unique galleries filled with paintings, sculptures, film memorabilia, photographs and more. The Autry’s collection of over 600,000 pieces of art and cultural objects includes one of the largest and most significant of Native American materials in the United States.

The Autry is a first-time grant recipient and will receive a grant in support of Future Imaginaries: Indigenous Art, Fashion, Technology – which is part of Pacific Standard Time’s Art and Science Collide. This three-part exhibition will showcase new work and emergent themes within the robust and evolving field of “Indigenous Futurism” within contemporary Native American art. Future Imaginaries will be the most diverse, dynamic, and forward-looking exhibition devoted to contemporary Native art presented to-date by a major LA museum. It will run September 7, 2024-June 21, 2026.
