Notes Large mural painting depicting an Indian woman in the left foreground holding a basket. Comissioned for NEITHER EMPTY NOR UNKNOWN EXHIBIT. Regarding the title, the artist wrote: "The plant gathering camp mural is officially titled "Gathering," (not THE Gathering, just simply, "Gathering"), referring to the woman in the foreground having gathered plants, another woman gathering water, the boys trying to gather dried meat, the hunters having gathered a couple deer, women in the background gathering gossip as they attend to the scraping of buffalo hides, the fire gathering strength in the woods as the storm gathers to keep it in check."
