Exhibition: Contemporary Indigenous Voices @ University Center Gallery Tickets
Sep 30 – Oct 25 all-day
Exhibition: Contemporary Indigenous Voices @ University Center Gallery

The exhibition will highlight the work of seven contemporary native artists in honor of Indigenous Peoples Day.  These include; Melanie Yazzie (Navajo); Joe Feddersen (Colville); Sara Siestreem (Coos/Lower Umpqua); John Hitchcock (Comanche); Duane Slick (Meskwaki); Jason Clark (Creek/Algonquin) and Molly Murphy-Adams (Oglala/Lakota).

Each of these artists represents a unique, beautiful and thought-provoking vision encompassing their cultural heritage and beliefs. The exhibition highlights a range of visual expressions, from large-scale woodcut statements about climate change to lithographs expressing protest, resistance and resilience. Other works in the exhibition explore myths and legends and still others investigate culture patterns of beadwork or basketry. Together these seven artists embody a wide array of style and vision.

Mr. Burns, a post-electric play @ Montana Theatre

This darkly comic imagining of a post-apocalyptic near future, a contemporary play the New York Times called “downright brilliant,” spans over 80 years and at least as many pop-culture references. A group of strangers becomes a traveling theatre troupe performing remembered episodes of “The Simpsons” as a way to make ends meet in the barter economy that rises from the ashes of American consumerism. Mr. Burns celebrates the human need to connect again and again through shared stories.
