Doug Hyde

Of Nez Perce, Assiniboine, and Chippewa descent, Doug Hyde’s sculptures are recognized for their innovativeness, expressions of mythology, and spirit. Through his sculptures, he gives a visual voice to stories of his own ancestors.

Hyde’s list of works and awards continues to grow. He created the collector’s bolo for the 2014 Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition and Sale, as well as a monumental limestone sculpture titled Zuni Water Gatherers that was recently acquired by the Palm Springs Desert Museum in Palm Desert, California. A 10-ton sculpture commission for the SRP–Salt River Project, featuring those who worked on the project’s electric production, water control, recreational use, and wildlife environment habitat, will be installed in July 2017 at the SRP–Salt River Project headquarters in Phoenix, Arizona.

Hyde won the James Earle Fraser Sculpture Award at the 2016 and 2015 Prix de West. In 2016 Intertribal Greeting, a larger-than-life-size sculpture, was installed at the south entrance to the Autry Museum. This year he also worked on the emblem of the USS Colorado, a newly commissioned submarine. A private showing was held under the world’s oceans.

In May 2015 he completed installation of a stone monumental titled Harvest at the Rio Grande at the University of Denver in Denver, Colorado. Hyde won the 2014 Cynthia Post Buyers’ Choice Award and the 2013 Williams Award for best in sculpture at the Collectors’ Reserve: Small Works, Great Wonders Exhibition and Sale at the Gilcrease Museum. In addition, he won the Sculpture Award and the Museum Purchase Award at the Eiteljorg Museum’s 2014 Quest for the West Art Show and Sale. The same year, his Navajo Women With Child and Parasol was installed at the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
