May 21, 2021 – Nevada City Rancheria Nisenan Tribe and California Heritage: Indigenous Research Project Presents UBA SEO – NISENAN ARTS AND CULTURE. ‘UBA SEO opens this weekend in our new space in downtown Nevada City where we will feature gallery exhibits, retail and workshop space. It is our desire to bring authentic Native American art and education into our community while focusing on Native American artists. We are pleased to invite the public to a special exhibition this weekend during our pre-opening. ‘UBA SEO is another amazing step in increasing the visibility of the Nevada City Rancheria and our ongoing struggle to restore our federal recognition. We’re excited to share two shows in this exhibition that have been loaned from the Judith Lowry Collection.

Indian, irony and identity

An extensive collection of Indian kitsch invites us to explore and question stereotypes and identity.

The dawn of the world

This exhibit features art made as part of the Works Progress Administration’s Federal Art Project. Both of the artists featured in this exhibition were not native, but their art captures several creation stories from California Indians.

Pre-opening weekend: Saturday / Sunday, 22./23. May from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
225 Broad Street Nevada City
Screening until Sunday June 27th
