Join us for a lively conversation entitled “We Work and Make Beautiful Things” featuring artists Teri Greeves (Kiowa) and Keri Ataumbi (Kiowa), who will discuss their artistic practices, influences that have shaped their work, and recent projects. Curator Jami Powell (Osage) will join the artists for a moderated conversation around themes of intergenerational knowledge transfer and women’s roles in arts and leadership as well as their connections to their own mothers, aunts, and grandmothers.

The talk begins at 6 p.m. and a reception for participants will follow. Registration is required — reserved your free ticket below!

The Ackland will be open before the talk and until 9 p.m. this evening.

This talk has been made possible by the generous support of the Caldwell Family Fund and has been co-organized with UNC-Chapel Hill’s Department of American Studies in honor of Jenny Tone-Pah-Hote (Kiowa).

Past Forward: Native American Art from Gilcrease Museum is co-organized by the American Federation of Arts and Gilcrease Museum.

The Ackland’s presentation of this exhibition has been made possible by the William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust, the Arthur F. and Alice E. Adams Charitable Foundation, and Jeff and Liesl Wilke ’92 (JD).
