Opening Wednesday, September 5 in Old College Gallery, “The World is Following Its People”: Indigenous Art and Arctic Ecology will be the first exhibition in Old College Gallery to focus on Indigenous art since 2002. Objects on display will include pieces from the Frederick and Lucy S. Herman and the Mabel and Harley McKeague collections of Inuit and Yup’ik art.
