Matika Wilbur (Swinomish and Tulalip), Photographer and Creator of Project 562
Please join photographer Matika Wilbur for an opening reception for her exhibition, Seeds of Culture: The Portraits and Stories of Native American Women, in the Johnson-Kulukundis Family Gallery in Byerly Hall at the Radcliffe Institute.
The event will open with a blessing by Mary Anne Hendricks (Sachem, Natick Nipmuc) and remarks by Yukio Lippit, Johnson-Kulukundis Family Faculty Director of the Arts at the Radcliffe Institute and a professor of history of art and architecture at Harvard University. The opening will feature special performances by singer Leah Shenandoah (Oneida Iroquois Wolf) and violinist and composer Laura Ortman (White Mountain Apache). The artist Matika Wilbur will give remarks in the Knafel Center, followed by a gathering in the exhibition space with the Harvard University Native American Program (HUNAP), Radcliffe fellows, Harvard faculty and staff, members of the arts community at Harvard and beyond.
The event is open to the public and provides a chance to see the new exhibition and meet the artist. We hope you can join us. Walk-in attendees are welcome.
This event at the Radcliffe Institute is part of the Initiative on Native and Indigenous Peoples.
