First Friday: Altars of Reconciliation
December 1 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Why would Native Americans believe in the gospel of the invaders, the so-called “white man’s religion”? This is the internal struggle that this exhibition chooses to address. Told within the context of a history of deeply ingrained Christian practice among generations of Native peoples, artists Bobby C. Martin, Erin Shaw, and Tony Tiger face the tensions created in their lives by the faith they practice. In Altars of Reconciliation, viewers experience contemporary, Native-themed altarpieces of sacred art, personal in their stories but universal in their struggle with eternal questions.
