As part of the Fourth Biennial Lincoln PhotoFest, an exhibition of photographs from the Fred E. Miller photograph collection is on display at the Great Plains Art Museum.

The photos, on loan from the Carroll and Nancy O'Connor Foundation, are featured in the lower-level gallery at the museum, 1155 Q St.

Between 1898 and 1912, Miller photographed the Crow Indians in Montana. The images provide a portrait of the Crow during what some have considered the last years of their wholly traditional Plains life. About half of these photos were included in a traveling exhibition produced by the Smithsonian in the mid-1990s. The exhibition, "Select Photographs by Fred E. Miller: Photographer of the Crows," will be on display through March 28.

The Great Plains Art Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free. First Friday reception for this exhibition is 5-7 p.m. Feb. 6.
