Portraits of Elders

  • On display during daily business hours

  • 💲Free & open to the public

See original portraits painted by world-renowned, Chickasaw artist Mike Larsen.

Noted by the award-winning Larsen as one of his greatest achievements, the Chickasaw elders paintings were published in a two-book series by the Chickasaw Press – “They Know Who They Are” and “Proud to Be Chickasaw.” Together, the volumes feature the portraits of almost 50 Chickasaw elders painted by Larsen, and each is accompanied by a short biography written by Martha Larsen and Jeannie Barbour.

Portraits are rotated throughout campus and are on display throughout the year.
