Invitation to a Lost World: 5000 Years of Art from the Bay Area Shellmounds

Join us and special guests for an afternoon of wonder, beauty and surprise about the art, craft and practices of our oldest native ancestors who walked the land we now call Berkeley-and how those traditions live on today. In this premier public viewing, objects from the West Berkeley Shellmound and Emeryville Shellmound will be shared for the first time-many of stunning beauty.

A panel of contemporary Native California artists, skilled in traditional practices, will discuss how these objects were made, the aesthetic principles that guided their manufacture, how they were used, their place within the culture, and their survival to this day. Panelists include Jennifer Bates, Ron Goode, Frank LaPena, Kent Lightfoot, Vincent Medina, Fred Velasquez, Linda Yamane, and special guests.

Presented by the California Institute for Community, Art And Nature, Berkeley Art Museum, Phoebe Hearst Museum of Anthropology, and the Richmond History Museum.

For more information about the panelists and our work, visit CaliforniaICAN.org.

Please also join us that morning on April 7th from 10am-12noon at the David Brower Center, 2150 Allston Way for Native Teachings. RSVP at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/native-teachings-tickets-44419326401.
