“Fixing the Earth: NOW!”

Exhibit Show Dates: Now – January 6, 2015

“Fixing the Earth: NOW!” is an art exhibition exploring the world renewal ceremonies of the Hupa, Karuk, Tolowa, Yurok, Wiyot, and Ts’nungwe of northwest California. Today, Fix the Earth is the descriptive term for the northwest California annual and bi-annual ceremonial practices during which the natural world is remade. The primary purpose of the rituals and ceremonies is to remake, to repair, and reset the earth onto its prop. This exhibition asks Native artists to consider how this age-old indigenous spiritual practice inspires their art.
