Event Description

Artpark & Company expands its commitment to Indigenous programming throughout its summer 2021 season. Under the curatorial leadership of Artpark's newly appointed Indigenous Arts Producer Michele-Elise Burnett (Algonquin-Bear Clan) and the Artpark Works program funded by the John R. Oishei Foundation First Niagara Foundation in partnership with Keybank, as well as M&T Bank and Cullen Foundations, visitors will explore, discover, and be part of the unique culture, traditions, and passed-down Indigenous heritage. The experiences continue this weekend with both live and digital programming. As part of a larger Sonic Trails initiative at Artpark, visitors can participate in Her Moccasins Talk, a free site-activated sound walk on Artpark trails. The sound walk – centered on the inclusive teachings of mother earth – is curated by local Indigenous musicians and designed in collaboration with Ms.Burnett, The Holladay Brothers and SoZo Artists. Additionally, FREE Family Saturdays, an Artpark program beloved by audiences for 20 years, is now enhanced with the Indigenous Ways of Knowing program. The program features expressive Native American Culture through interactive, land-based workshops, storytelling and teachings by well-respected local knowledge keepers in their disciplines. Other summer events include the Native Peace Garden created by the Tuscarora artists, now in full bloom; interactive installations focused on the history, presence and culture of Haudenosaunee; and the Strawberry Moon Festival, Artpark's Earth Day celebration shared digitally earlier this spring. Together, these events make for a unique program that embraces the relationship of the site, its history and its native community. For more information, please visit https://www.artpark.net/.
