A free presentation focusing on Native American art will be hosted by the Smoky Hill Museum on Thursday March 7, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Join special guest speakers America Meredith and Kelly Church as they discuss the history of Great Plains Native American art and how that art communicates history.
Meredith, of the Cherokee Nation, is publishing editor of First American Art Magazine and her art has shown throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. Church, of the Odawa/ Ojibwe/Potawatomi nations, is a painter, textile artist and fifth generation basket weaver.
