Opening Reception & Artist Talk

Tuesday, October 9, 6:30 – 8pm

The Sweet Breathing of Plants presents the indigenous art of Neshkinukat artists. In the Lakota language Neshkinukat means “We Are All Related.” In the Luiseño language it means “One Who Has Relatives.” The exhibit from October 6 to December 21 includes an exceptional collection of textiles, baskets, multimedia, photographs, and paintings, which celebrate the remarkable nature of plants. Elder Julia Bogany will give an opening blessing.  Tima Lotah Link is a Chumash cultural educator and basketweaver and is the evening’s featured speaker.

This is the first in a series of programs that is made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Visit www.calhum.org.
