“Chehantamo: How Are You?,” a new Seminole fine art exhibit will debut at History Fort Lauderdale on Sunday, October 22, prior to the start of Native American History Month (November). This collaboration with the Seminole Tribe of Florida’s Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum will feature the perspective of contemporary Seminole artists through large scale digital works juxtaposed with historic artistic context. Multidisciplinary photography, textiles, and more will provide a link to our shared future while acknowledging our shared past. The exhibit opens with a meet and greet at 2 p.m. on October 22 at the New River Inn History Museum and runs through January 6.

Curated by Tara Chadwick, “Chehantamo: How Are You?” will showcase mixed media, textiles, and digital art from multigenerational Seminole artists Nicholas DiCarlo, Danielle Nelson, Victoria Osceola, Samuel Tommie, Corinne Zepeda, and the late Elizabeth Buster.

Entry to the exhibit is free with general admission – $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is always free for members, military and children ages six and under. Tickets are available online at http://bit.ly/HistoryFortLauderdaleTickets.
