Museum of Culture and Environment Opening Reception: Three new Exhibitions

October 3, 2019 @ 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Please join the Museum of Culture and Environment as we open three new exhibitions to the public.

In the main gallery, viewers will see Telling Secrets, which features the paintings and stories of well-known Ellensburg artist Jane Orleman, who addresses her experiences of childhood sexual violence and other forms of domestic abuse. This exhibit is a form of therapy and medicine, wherein Orleman confronts the past, accepts her emotions, and imagines a healing future.

We will also be recognizing the new Window on Central display, Monkeys Do . . . We Do Too?, which showcases the research of CWU primatologists who studied Tibetan Macaques at Mt. Huangshan, China.

Shattering the Veil: A Reclamation of Female Indigenous Identity is a photography exhibit located in the MCE lobby, curated by CWU student Autumn Adams (Yakama Nation). Shattering the Veil invites viewers to examine how Indigenous women use culture to empower themselves in spaces of oppression. Thursday?s reception will include light refreshments and a few words of acknowledgment to honor the curators, artists, and researchers who made each exhibition possible.
