About the event
On Wednesday, March 10, from 4-5:30 p.m. join guest curator Michael Holloman as he speaks about the exhibition Follow the River: Portraits of the Columbia Plateau, which presents portraiture of Plateau tribal members as commissioned in the mid-1930s by former Washington State College President Ernest O. Holland. As a counterpoint, tremendous Plateau cultural materials are included from the WSU Museum of Anthropology, as well as the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture in Spokane. The program will revisit these documentary paintings while showing tribal permanence in the region. As many Nez Perce (and Plateau) peoples were painted on the Colville Indian Reservation at the time, it is appropriate to better understand this history in the context and importance of our indigenous land acknowledgment
Guests participants include: Provost Elizabeth Chilton, Zoe Higheagle Strong, and Nakia Williamson
