What is Native American art? Many tribes, each with unique aesthetics, are spread out across what is now known as America, meaning that gathering these wide-ranging paintings into one cohesive show is certainly a challenge—yet the new exhibition, which opened this week, does just that. Stretching the Canvas, now showing at the museum’s George Gustav Heye Center in New York, features pieces ranging over eight decades, including 30 different artists and 39 works overall.
