NO MORE STOLEN SISTERS

April  24 - July 31, 2022Stolen Sisters
The No More Stolen Sisters exhibition curated by Teresa Faris and Valaria Tatera brings together artworks representing the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women, girls and two spirits. The exhibition showcases technically diverse artworks of regional, national and international indigenous artists and allies addressing a range of experiences and emotions surrounding the violence against, and loss of indigenous women, girls and 2 spirits. Materials range from works on paper, mixed-media installation, metal, clay, quillwork, textile and paint.

The issue of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and two spirits (MMIWG2S) https://mmiwusa.org is gaining national attention due to the recent election of Deb Haaland and her initiatives surrounding this issue, and various other MMIWG2S efforts. Wisconsin is home to eleven registered tribal communities, and the adjacent Highway 90 acts as a main corridor for missing persons. With four out of five native women affected by violence in today's society, it is vital that the issue of MMIWG2S is given a voice.

A closing reception for the No More Stolen Sisters exhibit will be held Sunday, July 31 from 1:00-4:00pm. Free and open to the public.
