A New Place For the Indian Collection

Once the visitor center and museum at Colter Bay is demolished and work is begun on a replacement facility, what will it look like and what provisions will it have for the Indian Arts Collection currently being cleaned and restored after years of display under less-than-ideal conditions.  Grand Teton National Park Superintendent Mary Gibson Scott says those talks are currently under way. Among the options that have been discussed have been whether to split the collection between a year-around display at Moose and a display at Colter Bay, or sufficient facilities to display the nationally-significant collection at either one of those locations.  Scott says it is possible that a dedicated museum and/or a collection storage facility with some exhibit space in it, and or a dedicated wing of an existing building could be included in those options.  Scott says comments will be sought next summer regarding a building that will replace the existing Colter Bay Visitor Center, and if the collection isn’t all located there, there will be a second planning process for the permanent location of the collection in the park.
