The Quartz Mountain Art Collection: Mike Larsen's Works

Experience Chickasaw History and Culture

It's not hard to see why Mike Larsen's Quartz Mountain Sacred Ground has been called the "crown jewel" of the Quartz Mountain Art Collection. Featuring an eight-mural depiction of Native Americans in vivid color, with exaggerated hands, Larsen has chosen to focus on the spiritual aspects of the tribes he depicts, rather than war.
