Reweaving History

Art and politics have a long history together and combining the two often leads to powerful experiences for both the artist and viewer. Eastern Band Cherokee artist Shan Goshorn will speak about her woven-paper baskets and her career changing experience as a 2013 Smithsonian Artist Research Fellow. Her research in federal archives during this fellowship inspires and informs her work, which addresses issues unique to contemporary Native American people, such as sovereignty, treaty violation, gaming and repatriation. Come join us as she shares the experience of her research, showing objects of inspiration and the creative process involved in making her political baskets.

 

Tickets are $5 for Douglas Society members, $10 for DAM members, $12 others, free for students with ID.

 

Sponsored by the Douglas Society, a DAM support group.
