Join us as we celebrate Native American Heritage with an exhibition of contemporary art by an intergenerational cadre of Seminole artists.

About this event

History Fort Lauderdale celebrates its 9th annual contemporary art exhibition of works by artists from the Seminole Tribe of Florida.

Opening Sunday, November 6th at 1 pm.

Traditional opening, music, storytelling, artist meet and greet.

With a clear focus on the future, this exhibition of contemporary work proposes a path founded on a bedrock of trust, truth, dignity and integrity. Elemental relationships are analyzed, critiqued and reinterpreted by Indigenous artists transmitting knowledge through interactions of care with and beyond shared communities. At once new and timeless, fire lighting marks a moment in which we, individually and collectively, begin again, re-center our trajectory, and account for all of our past, present and future. "Chono Thlee" ignites a new era of Seminole and Miccosukee Art. - T. Chadwick
