We Are Here: A Festival of Contemporary Native American Art

Sunday, October 20, 2019
11 AM – 3 PM


Join in the festivities in honor of two exhibitions, When I Remember I See Red: American Indian Art and Activism in California and Pueblo Dynasties: Master Potters from Matriarchs to Contemporaries. People of all ages are invited to experience and celebrate Native American art, culture, and traditions during this afternoon of dancing, music, art demonstrations, hands-on activities, gallery interactives, and a Native artisan marketplace. Click HERE to learn more about the event. Please note, due to gallery capacity, access to When I Remember I See Red: American Indian Art and Activism in California may be limited during the festival.

This program was developed in partnership with members of a Native American Advisory Committee: Sigrid Benson, Jacklyn Calanchini, Gabe Cayton, James Allen Crouch, Cheewa James, and Christina Prairie Chicken Narvaez. The committee was instrumental in planning the programs, finding funding sources, and reaching out to tribal members and communities. We are appreciative of their help in ensuring a fuller understanding of the history and culture of local Native American communities.
