Native Voices Art Exhibit

October 6 - November 25

Join us as we celebrate Native American Culture and Art

OCT 6th- NOV 25th, 2018

Native American artists and those of all nations and backgrounds are invited to celebrate the opening of the annual Native Voices exhibit at the Niagara Arts and Cultural Center in Niagara Falls.

The event was created to celebrate native American heritage and illuminate the importance of preserving cultural heritage. Works range from photographs and stone carvings, to interactive installation pieces that encourage meditation at a symbolic ritual fire that invites guests to sit and meditate on the traditional Anishinabe teaching of the seven grandfathers of stone.

Alan Jamieson and Alan Jamieson Jr. of Neto Hatinakwe Onkwehowe, are curating the exhibit and will open the celebration with an opening address in the Cayuga language, thanking everyone for gathering, and offering thanks to creation.

The NACC is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free, courtesy of the New York State Council on the Arts.
