TAHLEQUAH – The 2017-18 Northeastern State University College of Liberal Arts’ Sequoyah Fellow, America Meredith will host a Cherokee Art History Symposium from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Nov. 10 in the University Center Redbud Room.

The symposium will present the media of Cherokee visual arts throughout time and will bring together artists, art historians and other scholars to examine the visual arts history of the Cherokee Nation, Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians.

The full day of presentations endeavors to distinguish Cherokee art from the artworks of neighboring tribes, while acknowledging the trade relationships and cultural exchanges shared by tribes. Talks will trace Cherokee artists’ early adoption of photography, printmaking, filmmaking and digital technologies, and ongoing revivals of Indigenous art forms.

The registration fee for the symposium is $25 and RSVP is requested in advance at ahalenia.com/arthistory. The symposium is free for NSU students, faculty and staff.

This symposium is made possible through NSU’s Sequoyah Fellowship program and is co-sponsored by the Southeastern Indian Artists Association, a Tahlequah-based nonprofit art advocacy group.
