THIRTEEN’s NYC-ARTS Explores the Exhibition “T.C. Cannon: At the Edge of America” at the National Museum of the American Indian

On June 20, NYC-ARTS will bring viewers inside the exhibition “T.C. Cannon: At the Edge of America” currently on view at the National Museum of the American Indian downtown at Bowling Green.

An artist, poet, and musician, T.C. Cannon was one of the most innovative and influential Native Americans of the 20th-century. The exhibition features 80 pieces of the artist’s best-known paintings, poetry, music and works on paper, a testament to his craft and a personal exploration of a life and career affected by the politics and society of America during the time in which he lived.

“Cannon was a visionary at the forefront of broadening and reshaping the boundaries of Native artistic narratives,” Kevin Gover, the director of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian in a statement about the exhibition. “The imagery he created was stunningly authentic and has influenced the work of many other artists, Native and non-Native alike.”

NYC-ARTS, THIRTEEN’s weekly arts and culture multi-platform showcase, brings arts lovers an all-access pass to the interesting, unusual and unique cultural offerings of the greater New York City region.

Co-hosted by New York Emmy Award winners Philippe de Montebello and Paula Zahn, with events around town reported by Christina HaNYC-ARTS showcases both world-renowned and local, community-based arts organizations.
