Wells College welcomes Gwen Saul, curator of ethnography at the New York State Museum in Albany, for a talk entitled, "How Do We Overcome This Troubled Past? Understanding New York Histories through Indigenous Art."

Her talk is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 19, at 7:00 p.m. in the Hostetter Lecture Hall (Stratton 209) on the Wells College campus. The event is free and open to the public.

Gwen Saul is curator of the Ethnographic Collections at the New York State Museum (NYSM), which include over 3,500 objects of Native American art and material culture from Indigenous communities across North America, with an emphasis on the Eastern Woodlands. In addition to managing the care and preservation of the collection, she works with citizens of Indigenous nations across what is now New York state to curate and develop the NYSM Contemporary Native American Art Collection.

Her talk will feature a selection of contemporary Native art from the NYSM Ethnographic Collections that elucidates Indigenous histories and issues relevant to all who live in New York state—which sits upon Indigenous land that is central to the histories and continuity of diverse and numerous Indigenous nations.

Wells College promises a relevant liberal arts and sciences education. Intellectually challenging. Reinterpreted for today. Classroom teaching combined with hands-on learning. Wells graduates enter the world prepared for successful futures.
