Celebrate the opening of the newest exhibition in WAM’s gallery dedicated to local artists with a talk by exhibition organizer Daniel Pewewardy. Pewewardy is a Comanche filmmaker, comedian, adult services librarian at the Wichita Public Library, and Vice-Chair of the Board of Trustees for the Mid-America All-Indian Museum. The central theme of Twice Removed is present-day Indigenous life, and the works of art in the show were created by living Native American artists from a variety of tribal nations. Encompassing a variety of mediums and styles, including video, photography, and ledger art, the works of art blend traditional and contemporary elements and exemplify the dynamic and adaptable spirit of Native culture. This exhibition is a partnership with Harvester Arts, a local nonprofit art organization that helps to foster opportunities for Wichita creatives based on their core values of experimentation, capacity building, and community engagement.
