"50 Years of Pow-Wow"
2005-09-30 until 2006-01-08
Illinois State Museum
Springfield, IL, USA United States of America

During the opening at Illinois State Museum in Springfield, Illinois, on September 30, 2005 see the Fifty Years of Powwow exhibition and meet featured exhibition artists Norma Robertson, Christine Redcloud, Nancy Bechtol, Mary Petracek, and Robert Wapahi. Families can also enjoy an authentic drum and dance presentation by members of the American Indian Center of Chicago. Exhibition curators Jane Stevens of the ISM Chicago Gallery and Joseph Podlasek, Nora Lloyd, and Warren Perlstein of the American Indian Center will be available to answer questions about the exhibit.

Photographs, regalia, posters, and video footage document 50 years of powwow tradition in Chicago. The photographs in the exhibition celebrate a half century of the Chicago powwow experience, documenting drumming, singing, and dancing, and highlighting the four circles of a powwow. Selected objects such as moccasins, a beaded pouch, leggings, and a breastplate from the ISM collection provide additional insight. This exhibition was organized by the American Indian Center of Chicago and Jane Stevens of the ISM Chicago Gallery.

Nancy Bechtol is a Premiere Portfolio member at absolutearts.com, and is included in this major show with a video “Let’s Powwow”. View more of her works at: http://www.absolutearts.com/portfolios/n/nancybechtol/.
