“Art by ‘Woody’ Crumbo"

Our newest exhibit features 17 prints of indigenous dancers.
Crumbo, a well-known Native American artist whose work is on display at the Smithsonian Institution and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, also was a flautist and dancer of Potawatomi descent. In the 1950s, Crumbo spent time as an independent prospector, discovering one of the largest beryllium veins in the country. His works often depict traditional dancers and clothing. Crumbo died in 1989.
The prints were donated by Bill and Sue Hensler, long-time Aurora residents, museum supporters and benefactors before they moved to Dolores, Colo. The Hensler Collection has previously been on display at the Aurora History Museum in 1991 and in 2010.
