The Five Civilized Tribes Museum in February will host a retrospective exhibit of Barbara McAlister, internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano opera singer.

In addition to her career as an opera and concert soloist, the Muskogee native is a renowned Native American painter.

Along with the Five Civilized Tribes Museum, her paintings have been shown at the Jacobson House in Oklahoma City, the Wharton Art Gallery in Philadelphia and Bullock’s in Los Angeles, with many now in private collections throughout the United States and Europe.

The museum will display McAlister’s works from Feb. 1-29. The museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.

A reception for the exhibit will be held at 5 p.m. on Feb. 1.

In 2013, McAlister was inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame in Muskogee and was given a key to the city in 2019.
