The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center is celebrating Native American culture and art with a free, public performance by the Wyoming Indian Traditional Club of youth dancers and drummers on the grounds of the NHTIC.
On August 28, starting at 1 p.m. the dancers and drummers will celebrate the closing of the NHTIC’s temporary art exhibit, “Nature’s Children, Connecting the Past to Present.” The art show opened to the public on June 23 and includes prints, ceramic sculptures and pastel paintings. The artwork from the students of the Wyoming Indian High School will be available for sale through the National Historic Trails Center Foundation.
Cleve Bell, art instructor at the Wyoming Indian High School, coordinated the exhibit with his art students and worked closely with staff at the NHTIC. “This exhibit provided us the opportunity to showcase the many talents and creative expressions of young artists from right here in Wyoming,” said Jason Vlcan, an interpreter at the Center.
This temporary exhibit was made possible in part by the Rocky Mountain Conservancy and the National Historic Trails Center Foundation.
