Saturday, September 14, 2019 – 1:00 pm – OPENING RECEPTION: Native People of the Eastern Woodlands: Art and Artifacts. The Eastern Woodlands is a cultural area of the indigenous people of North America, consisting of tribes inhabiting the United States and Canada, east of the Mississippi. Though their region was vast, the people of Eastern Woodland tribes lived in similar ways, and their art and artifacts reflect their deep-rooted culture, still evident through their descendants. This exhibit showcases modern native artists exploring historic themes and identities alongside earlier works. Art, artifacts, carvings, portraits, and tribal dress combine in this celebration of the Eastern Woodlands people. Exhibit curated by Jamie Reason. In our Grand Staas Gallery. Free opening reception admission + light refreshments.
