Sisters in Spirit: Native American Stories in Rocks and Beads Opening at the Neville
Green Bay, WI---September 21, 2015--- Wisconsin is a unique mixture of immigrant and native populations. Living together in complicated relationships for hundreds of years, both people have shaped the state in which we live. Sisters in Spirit: Native American Stories in Rocks and Beads displays the works of two artists – one Oneida and one from European stock – who both hear the whispers of the original occupants of our shared home. When their work is viewed together, the viewer gets a compelling glimpse of the continuing influence of Native Americans on contemporary Wisconsin art. Through their art, the ancient stories of our land speak again.
Sisters in Spirit runs from September 26, 2015 through February 14, 2016.
