Will Wilson, an indigenous artist, will discuss how his provocative photographic images challenge Edward S. Curtis's classic portraits of Native Americans frozen in the past. In his documentary style, the tintype of the early 20th century collides with modern people to indigenize the photographic exchange.

Social hour at 5:30 pm, lecture at 6 pm. Tickets are $5 Douglas Society members, $10 DAM members, $12 others. Reservations recommended by March 26.
