Contemporary Indigeneity: Spiritual Borderlands

Center for Great Plains Studies, Great Plains Art Museum
(12th and Q Streets)

The 2016 iteration of Contemporary Indigeneity at the Great Plains Art Museum at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will explore Native American spirituality through artistic interpretations of place in the Great Plains. By bringing together works incorporating a diverse range of artistic media, this exhibition will seek to create dialogues regarding interpretations of sovereignty, spiritual connections to the land, and cultural identity within the boundaries of the Great Plains.
