Experience the dynamic nature of Comanche culture through the paintings of Comanche artist and historian Eric Tippeconnic. Filled with symbolism and meaning, Tippeconic’s paintings are rich with history and the unbroken connection the Comanche people have with their roots. The artwork is juxtaposed with Comanche artifacts to provide historical context and underscore Tippeconnic’s inspiration for the paintings. Engage with the symbolism and meaning in each painting through hands-on interactives for all ages, including a symbol scavenger hunt, a pattern-making activity and touchable canvases and artist tools.
