Culture Connect Featured Event
Expressed in many ways, art was, and still is, an intricate part of Native American's daily lives from adornment, baskets, and pottery to other every day items. It is a form of conveying their individual cultural and spiritual identities. IAIS is pleased to partner with the Shepaug Middle and High School art Departments to present a unique exhibit of Native American inspired art. Multi-Media Performance educator Michael Rivera's high school students, after researching headdress styles from a variety of Native American gorups and cultures, will sculpt their own interpretations out of mixed media. Under the guidance of art educator Donna Wright, seventh grade students will study the different designs of Native American pottery to create and decorate coiled pots from their chosen cultural region. Included in regular museum admission.
