Restoring Indigenous Voices: Landscapes from the Permanent Collection

EXHIBITION: January 20–April 6
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, January 21, 4-6pm

PHOEBE & BELMONT TOWBIN WING

This exhibition explores the historical contexts of a selection of landscapes from the permanent collection acknowledging the Native American significance of well-known mountains, rivers, fields and sites in the region. Eighteen works will be on view including paintings, photographs, and prints presented alongside extended labels that identify the Native American territories depicted, and the tribes – Mohican and Munsee – who inhabited the Hudson Valley for centuries before being forced out by European settlers.

This exhibition and accompanying public programs are co-curated by Nicole L. Goldberg, Executive Director, WAAM and Evan Pritchard, descendant of the Mi’kmaq people (part of the Algonquin nations), founder of the Center for Algonquin Culture, and former Professor of Native American history at Marist College, Vassar College and Pace University. A concurrent solo exhibition of works by Shinnecock Nation tribe member and artist Jeremy Dennis will be on view from January 20–February 26, 2023 in WAAM’s adjacent Solo Gallery.
