American Indians in Tiffany's Marquette Mural

In conjunction with the 2017 special exhibition, Tiffany’s Glass Mosaics, on view from May 20, 2017- through January 6, 2018, director of education and interpretation Kris Wetterlund sat down with cultural historian Logan Pappenfort from the Peoria Tribe of Indians of Oklahoma to discuss the representation of Peoria Tribal members in Tiffany’s mural, “Jacques Marquette’s Expedition,” in the Marquette Building (Chicago, Illinois). Tiffany’s Glass Mosaics, jointly organized with The Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass in Queens, New York, was the first museum exhibition focused exclusively on Tiffany’s extraordinary work in mosaics.
