Through Their Eyes: A California Indian Art Exhibition was curated in collaboration with the Dorothy Ramon Learning Center located in Banning, California. This exhibit consists of thirty-five sculptures and paintings created by local Cahuilla and Serrano artists. California Indian art serves as a tangible representation of their societal perspective, cultures, and histories. Californian Indian art is underrepresented in our area and this exhibit serves as a public display of personal, cultural, and spiritual perspectives of local artists that are members of Native American nations of Southern California Indian tribes. As a society we should focus on cultures that are underserved, underrepresented, and widely not seen and not a part of the general consciousnesses in our own communities. By focusing on visibility, we ensure that we lessen the risk of losing certain traditional teachings of culture, languages, history, and art.
