Opening Reception: April 20, 2018
Short Program begins at 6:00pm

Walker’s Point Center for the Arts is proud to present its latest exhibition, titled “Native Voices”, the latest in its series of exhibitions encouraging thoughtful social dialogue and community engagement. With a focus on contemporary American-Indian artists and makers, the Native Voices exhibition aims to bring forth the long-standing traditions of American-Indian communities while connecting their voices, experiences, and stories to the broader Milwaukee community. Artists include: Bernard C. Perley (comics), Cleo Keahna (mixed media), Cyndi Bergloff (painting), James Kelly (beadwork), Jason Northern (painting), LeAnne Thompson (painting), Nora Lloyd (photography) Sky Hopinka (film) and Valaria Tatera (clay/mixed media).
 

Native Voices is a collaborative exhibition created in partnership between the Walker’s Point Center for the Arts (WPCA), and the Electa Quinney Institute for American Indian Education (EQI) at UW-Milwaukee. It is supported, in part, by the Woodland Indians Art Initiative at the Wisconsin Arts Board. This project centered on a participatory research approach to incorporate the community voice during the planning, execution and evaluation process for the exhibit.

 

The exhibition will run April 6  through May 19 and is located at 839 S 5th Street.

Gallery hours are 12pm-5pm, Tuesday to Saturday. Viewing is open to the public and free of charge.
This exhibition is part of the Historic Third Ward two-day quarterly premier art event Spring Gallery Night and Day, April 20 & 21, 2018.
