Exhibit Opening–Ojibwe Public Art, Ostrom Private Lives

04:00 pm to 06:00 pm
Mathers Museum of World Cultures, 416 N. Indiana Avenue

Please join us for the opening reception for the exhibit “Ojibwe Public Art, Ostrom Private Lives.” The exhibit explores works by late 20th century Ojibwe artists of Manitoulin Island, Canada, collected by Elinor and Vincent Ostrom. During the event a talk on “Spirit Island Renaissance: Ojibwe Artists, White Patrons, and the Manitoulin Cultural Revival” will be presented by Crystal Migwans (Wikwemikong Unceded First Nation), a recent graduate of Carleton University and currently a PhD student in Art History at Columbia University. Her research explores the traditional arts of the Anishinaabeg within the context of colonization and resistance. The event begins at 4 p.m.; the talk is at 4:30 p.m. The exhibit was curated by a team of IU graduate students through a project partially supported by the IU College of Arts and Sciences Ostrom Grants Program, and the event will be free and open to the public.

Cost: Free
