Descendants of the Sand Creek Massacre of November 29, 1864 have created an exhibit of artwork depicting the day of the massacre. More than 150 Cheyenne and Arapaho people were viciously massacred at Sand Creek, CO. The work of Cheyenne and Arapaho artists Brent Learned and George Levi focuses on the remembrance, honor and strength of their ancestors and leaders.
CCHM is hosting the exhibition One November Morning from February 13 through June 18, 2016. This extraordinary exhibition has shown at the Denver Art Museum and galleries at University of Denver and Northwestern University. CCHM will be the first venue on the West Coast.
Learned and Levi will paint three murals that memorialize their journey to Vancouver to tell the stories of their ancestors. The murals will also contain elements of Clark County history. This permanent addition to our collection will document a historic visit from Cheyenne and Arapaho tribal representatives.
CCHM is partnering with WSUV, Clark College, Fort Vancouver National Historic Site, Title VII Indian Education and the Portland Art Museum. Throughout the run of the exhibition, related programs related will be held at these various venues.
Your donation will help us bring the exhibition and several of the artists to the Museum.
