Visual Arts Center of New Jersey to Host Community Opening Day in Support of Fall Exhibitions
October 9 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm CDT
The event, which will take place during Indigenous People’s weekend, on Saturday, October 9, from 1-6 PM, will include tours of the exhibitions; samples of Indigenous food provided by Buffalo Jump NYC; and performances throughout the day by the Silver Cloud Singers & Dancers, an intertribal Native American singing and dance troupe that weaves together traditional and contemporary Native song and dance.
The event will begin at 1 PM with a blessing and land acknowledgment recognizing that the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey is situated in Lenapehoking, the ancestral land of the Lenape people, and honoring all Indigenous communities, past, present, and future.
