Ghost River: the Fall & Rise of Conestoga
5:00pm – 7:00pm
Ghost River: The Fall and Rise of the Conestoga will place original art commissioned for the graphic novel into conversation with the rich historical records at America’s oldest cultural institution, the Library Company of Philadelphia. Juxtaposing the library’s expansive holdings with the art of Weshoyot Alvitre, this exhibition will challenge patrons to reinterpret Pennsylvania’s history of exploration, settlement, and conquest.
This exhibition and the Redrawing History: Indigenous Perspectives on Colonial America project has been supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
