Indigenous Environmental Activism in Art - Opening Reception
Join us at the Mercer Gallery for an Opening Reception for the
Indigenous Environmental Activism in Art exhibit on Thursday, November 9, 2017,
from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
The No DAPL (Dakota Access Pipe Line) movement stimulated many to "Stand
with Standing Rock" against big oil in 2016 and incited awareness of critical
environmental issues and climate change. Indigenous communities have long been
aware of various problems of the environment and have reflected it in their art
practice. Indigenous Environmental Activism in Art showcases how Indigenous
artists are raising awareness of environmental issues. As a part of the show,
posters of artists' work will be available for purchase and proceeds will go
towards charities that are taking a stand against climate change.
Free and open to the public.
