Cyrus Dallin set the highest standard of the most robust American Classicism to date. His historic contribution was to connect the high art of Europe with the themes of America. Patriots, Indians, American War Heroes—each was given the attention and respect of a sensitive, observant man.
After his death, his work was ignored for decades. Many works were lost, abandoned, or thrown away. But enough people enjoyed his work to preserve some portion—a photograph, a sketch, a letter, a model, and, sometimes, an actual sculpture.
History has made the first cut. Now, this is our opportunity to let future generations know what we value. We think Cyrus Dallin was a genius, and we want him to make the big leagues of Art History.
At the Museum, visitors can see the works of this master sculptor in context and—except for the larger monuments—at one location. The Museum provides a secure, climate-controlled environment to protect and preserve Dallin’s sculptures and archives into the future. Dallin’s sculptures are on display, along with exhibits about his life and work.
