Philbrook Museum of Art explores the impact of the Philbrook Indian Annual, a juried exhibition and sale held by the museum from 1946 to 1979 and open to American Indian artists. Not only did the event attract some of the greatest artists of the age, it also caught the attention of art collectors and curators from around the world, watching for paintings, sculpture and other works that would turn the genre on its ear for decades to come. Impact: The Philbrook Indian Annual examines how the show influenced art and will feature works submitted to the Annual in the course of its near three decades — including pieces by Dick West, Oscar Howe and Allan Houser.  Impact opens Sunday, Oct. 19, and runs through January at 2727 S. Rockford Road, Tulsa. For more about the event, visit www.philbrook.org.
