“Creation Story 2000” placed in National Museum of the American Indian, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.
George and Peggy Wessler, long time collectors of Fonseca’s work, recently purchased “Creation Story 2000” (6’ 1” x 17’ 3”) and donated the large canvas to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian.
The piece is prominently installed on the third floor of the museum at the entrance to the permanent exhibition entitled “Our Lives.” The location, also adjacent to a stunning architectural overlook, provides the visitor ample and comfortable seating for contemplation.
This work has been accessioned into the museum’s permanent collection.
