Opening Reception | June 3 at 6pm | Opening comments by Dr. Stan Rodriguez | Bird Singers & Dancers
The La Jolla Historical Society is honored to present an exhibit of contemporary art created by Native Americans from the reservations of Southern California where San Diego County is home to eighteen reservations – more than any other county in the United States. Southern California Natives live both on and off the Rez, upholding historic culture and traditions while concurrently inhabiting the modern world. In this exhibition, ten artists reveal images, ingenuity, and unrestrained voices divulging their stories and communicating opinions through artistic expression. The medium for powerfully affirming their voices is through painting, drawing, sculpture, fashion, beadwork, mixed media, narrative writing, song and performance. Works from these artists break through stereotypical barriers and open a path to share their strength, perspectives, and influential experience.
There will be a series of programs featuring diverse Native American artists from San Diego and Riverside Counties.
