art displayThe Cherokee exhibit “Understanding our Past, Shaping our Future” is on display through Sept. 19 in the Balsam Building Lobby at Southwestern Community College in Sylva. A community input session will be held from noon until 3 p.m. Thursday, Aug 22, at SCC.

 

Slated to travel to 10 sites in the region, the exhibit places cultural interpretation in locations frequented by the public.  Using recordings made by Native speakers, the exhibit focuses on Cherokee language and culture and is sponsored by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

The exhibit is a community-based exhibition sponsored by the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in partnership with Cherokee Central Schools, Southwestern Community College, and the Cherokee Center and Cherokee Language Program at Western Carolina University.
