When library doors are open, we display art exhibits in the Olga Knoepke Memorial Room on the first floor of the Library building, the hallway on the first floor, the Gathering Room on the second floor, and the Mary Hawley Room on the third floor. The exhibits are open during regular library hours. You can also keep an eye on this space for virtual gallery shows!
I is for Indian
Native American Identity Stolen, Sold, and Reclaimed
Each of us carries stories of North America’s Native People, consciously or not. For over 500 years, Western perceptions have been placed upon Indigenous peoples of North America, stripping them of their cultural, ethnic & linguistic diversity.
This exhibit offers an alternative narrative of Native American self-expression.
As you walk through this room and back out into the world, continue to ask yourself: what has informed your perception of who Native people are? Who is controlling the narrative?
