Perspectives & Parallels Symposium and Reception


March 4, 2014


Tweed Museum of Art


Perspectives and Parallels is a project funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. The project considers how the region's largest art museum might create programs with American-Indian curators and present and collect contemporary American Indian artists' work. Through this project, the Tweed Museum of Art endeavors to expose more artists, curators and audiences to the museum's collections, including the Richard E. and Dorothy Rawlings Nelson Collection of American Indian Art; Engage younger generations and new audiences to consider the museum as a site for inspiration and learning, and as a cultural touch-stone for American Indian art in our region. 


Jill Doerfler, Professor of American Indian Studies at the University of Minnesota Duluth, will moderate the discussion.
