Indigenize Your Eyes Exhibit Reception
October 8, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
In honor of Indigenous Peoples Day, join us for a reception with the talented youth artists responsible for the Indigenize Your Eyes photo exhibit. Hear from the eight native artists about their process and inspiration.
Indigenize Your Eyes is a participatory photography project intended to raise awareness of the history and current status of American Indians in Boulder. This project gives voice and empowering storytelling skills to local Native Americans in our community. Partnering with notable indigenous storyteller Josue Rivas and local photographers and indigenous organizations (and funded by a grant from the City of Boulder’s Arts Commission), native youth participated in a 3-day Photography Camp in July 2018 at the Museum of Boulder. Students were then mentored throughout the summer by volunteer professional photographers and this exhibit highlights the work they produced through this process.
