Exhibit Opening for Carrying Prayer: Reclamation, Remembrance, and Honor

October 6, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

A bold and breathtaking exhibition featuring the work of Anthony Melting Tallow, Bo’taan’niis, (Flying Chief) will open on October 6, 2022 at the Wistariahurst Museum. A member of the Blackfoot nation and proud Two Spirit, Aya’kii’kas’si, (Walks A Journey Between), Melting Tallow’s work addresses land dispossession, residential school inter-generational trauma, reframing indigenous voices, misappropriation of native imagery, and violence against indigenous women. Most importantly, Melting Tallow’s work represents hope.

Accompanying Melting Tallow’s stunning visionary artwork is an installation embodying the memory of those lost to violence. According to the Bureau of Indian Affairs, there are an estimated 4,200 missing and murdered investigations that have gone unsolved, the majority of which involve women. In total, more than 1.5 million American Indian and Alaska Native women have experienced violence in their lifetime.

Pre-registration is requested.
City of Holyoke board of health protocols for COVID 19 will be followed.
