  • SFV Arts & Cultural Center

April 4 - 22, 2017

Gala Opening Reception: Saturday, April 8th

from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m.

Described by the UCLA American Indian Studies Center as “an interesting and important exhibition,” First Peoples showcases 106 artworks, ranging from basketry and pottery to installation and video art.

What does it mean to be a Native artist?

The answers to this question are as diverse as the 30 artists participating in First Peoples, all with indigenous roots North or South of the Border. However, within this apparent diversity, is a strikingly unified message:

Far from having “vanished,” indigenous peoples are very much here, and continue to be nourished by their Native cultures.

The April 8th gala opening reception features a tribal blessing and performances by Native youth.

Curator: Walter L. Meyer

A Message from the President of the San Fernando Valley Arts & Cultural Center

This exhibition fulfills a dream in that the SFVACC has finally risen above the idea that it is simply a gallery.  We have always made it our mission to educate our audience about both culture and art, beckoning the viewer to explore a blending of the two.
