Pratt is a Cheyenne and Arapaho tribal member and has won numerous awards for his art, including the designation as the Red Earth 2005 Honored One. Considered one of the leading forensic artists in the United States, Pratt has spent more than 42 years in law enforcement, completing thousands of witness descriptions drawings and hundreds of soft tissue reconstructions. His work has assisted in thousands of arrests and hundreds of identifications of unidentified human remains throughout America.

“This is a very important show, one that needs to be seen by all people,” said Scott Henderson, galleries director for Science Museum Oklahoma. “The brilliant imagery and symbolism of Robert Taylors and the creative expression and artistry of Harvey Pratt will install in the viewer the importance to understand Native American art/culture, not only in ourselves but our place in it.”
