About Wassenberg Art Center
Established in 1954, the Wassenberg Art Center presents an average of 8 different and unique free exhibits each year.

A permanent exhibit, Faces of Little Bighorn, features the artwork of the late David Humphreys Miller, formerly of Van Wert, who, as a young teenager became fascinated with the battle and started interviewing Lakota survivors of that pivotal American battle. His lifes work encompasses hundreds of painted portraits of the Lakota Sioux and Plains Indians and includes murals painted at the Citadel Military College in South Carolina, book illustrations and other commissioned work. This exhibit consists of several original paintings, sketches, movie posters and film footage.
