North Central Missouri College in Trenton has established a permanent display in honor of Robert “Bob” H. Wyatt at the Dorris Rider Art Gallery on the college campus. Mr. Wyatt donated Indian Artifacts and Artwork from his private collection. Mr. Wyatt currently lives in Kansas City, Missouri and was originally from Spickard.
The donation and display includes a 26” x 31” watercolor of a Sioux Indian on parchment paper by a Professor from Iowa State University. The frame is wormy chestnut. Also included in the display are three Southwest carvings - a bison, a winged eagle and a coyote. These carvings were handcrafted from Desert Ironwood from the Sonoran Desert of Arizona and New Mexico. Such carvings originated by the Seri Indians. The display also includes five Indian pots of various shapes and sizes.
The Dorris Rider Art Gallery is located in the Frey Administrative Center and is open to the public from 8:30 a.m. till 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Jim Norris, NCMC art instructor, is the Gallery Director.
Teresa J. Cross, NCMC Foundation Director, and Dr. Neil Nuttall, NCMC President.
