Storywork exhibit

Storywork: The Prints of Marie Watt

Upcoming

August 20 – December 11, 2022

Marie Watt (Seneca, b. 1967) is one of the country’s most celebrated contemporary artists, whose work draws on personal experience, indigenous traditions, proto-feminism, mythology, and art history. Drawing on the collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his family foundation, Storywork  is a comprehensive look at Watt’s 30-year career, including more than 60 original prints and sculptural works. The exhibition also showcases Watt’s deep veneration for indigenous narratives, especially those informed by her own Seneca heritage.
