Exhibitions: Choctaw Expressions in conjunction with Savages and Princesses: The Persistence of Native American Stereotypes
May 1 – August 7
Today, Native American contributions are often overlooked or forgotten. But what remains are the negative stereotypes. In this joint exhibition, Choctaw Expressions highlights the culture of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians and brings awareness to the stereotypes Native Americans face every day. The Savages and Princesses: The Persistence of Native American Stereotypes exhibition represents thirteen contemporary Native American visual artists who reclaim their right to represent their identities using humor, subtlety, and irony. Free with museum admission.
This exhibition is a program of ExhibitsUSA and The National Endowment for the Arts.
Made possible by the generous support of Yates Construction.
