Art Martin is Director of Collections & Exhibitions and Senior Curator at the museum and he shared with us a peek at some of the photographs and the story behind photographer Edward S. Curtis.

Visitors can enjoy this historic masterpiece from Sept. 16 through Jan. 9, only at the Muskegon Museum of Art in downtown Muskegon.
