Exhibit: Dancing for My Tribe: Photos of Potawatomi Regalia in the New Millennium: May 12 – June 12 at AMBS
An exhibit of 22 nearly life-size photographic portraits of contemporary Potawatomi Indians in regalia is on display at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary (AMBS), 3003 Benham Avenue. The portraits by photographer Sharon Hoogstraten (Citizen Potawatomi Nation) are accompanied by the subjects’ handwritten personal narrative of their regalia.
The public is invited to tour the free, self-guided exhibit during normal business hours (8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Mon–Fri, except Memorial Day); and from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 18, and Wednesday, May 31. (Other hours by appointment only.) The exhibit begins in the AMBS library gallery (use the tower entrance).
Also on May 31, Hoogstraten will be at AMBS for an artist’s reception in the lounge (3–4 p.m.) and a presentation (7–9 p.m.). These events are free and open to the public.
