Posted on 9 Nov 2012 by Chloe Watson
Niner Natives, the Native American student organization at UNC Charlotte, is premiering Four Directions: A Journey through Native American Art in the Student Union this coming Tuesday, November 13, 5â€“7Â PM.
A Journey through Native America Art will provide an innovative look at the diversity of artistic expression within Native American communities across the country. Guest entering the exhibition will take a voyage through an elaborate display of art forms that were created by artists from the Southwest, Plains, and Eastern tribes. Also in honor of our veterans, and our elders, there will be a film continuously showing within the space called: Native American Veterans: Storytelling for Healing. Please journey through this public showing of traditional baskets, mixed media, tribal regalia, and an 8â€™x8â€™ graffiti wall with an open mind and an open heart. This exhibit will not only join the traditional and contemporary, but will also show how a variety of art forms are embedded in modern Native American identity and cultural expression.
The exhibit will remain open until Nov 30th, from 9 AM â€” 9 PM on weekdays,Â and is free to anyone who is interested.
