50 Years of Powwow in Chicago
The Field Museum in collaboration with
the American Indian Center of Chicago
July 2003 -- January 2004

This temporary exhibition of 50 photographs documents the first 50 years of powwow celebrations in Chicago. I developed the show in collaboration with curators Madeleine Tudor (The Field Museum) and Dave Spencer (American Indian Center of Chicago).

This exhibition is currently traveling to other venues across the United States.
