Public Art Representations of 
Native American & Cambodian
 

 
Saturday, October 13th @ 2pm
@ American Indian Center
3401 West Ainslie Street

 
In a contemporary context, public monuments such as Ivan Mestrovic's The Bowman and The Spearman (1928), which depict "Native Americans" but were created by a non-Native artist and without a first-voice perspective, are viewed by some as inaccurate representations of Native American people.

 
As part of Chicago Cultural Alliance's Culture at the Intersection series, American Indian Center and National Cambodian Heritage Museum collaborate to present a conversation about cultural appropriation and the importance of self-representation in public art. Join community based-artists as they discuss specific public art pieces across Chicago, how appropriation and authentic art differ in the public sphere, and why it is important to craft and control the narrative. The program includes a panel discussion at the American Indian Center followed by an optional tour of the National Cambodian Heritage Museum.

We at AIC want to let you know about research led by Professor Doug Medin at Northwestern University. His study team is doing research about the natural world in a study called Cultural Processes in Learning About Ecosystems. They are interested in what people think about ecological relationships and how that is affected by their culture. 
 

 
If you are an adult (age 25+) or have a child (ages 6 - 14), would you be interested in taking part or allowing you child to take part in this study? Participation may involve:

 
a. taking a walk in a forest or neighborhood with your child. OR
b. Looking at pictures, words, or other items and sorting them or describing relationships between them, and giving reasons why you think so

 
There are no right or wrong answers; the researchers are just interested in what you think. You will be compensated by the researchers $20 for 30 minute tasks OR $40 for hour-long tasks.

 
If you would be interested in participating or if you have any questions, please contact Forrest Bruce at forrest.bruce@northwestern.edu. If you know of someone who might be interested in participating, the study team would appreciate it if you could spread the word.Please feel free to forward this email to friends or family who might want to take part in this research opportunity.
