«Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly» takes the yearly migration path of the Monarch butterfly, from Central Canada through the Midwest, the Plains of Nebraska and Texas, on its way to Mexico and back, as a metaphor for considering themes of place, home, movement, migration, immigration, mobility, diaspora across the Americas, transnationalism, land rights, and sovereignty.

5–6:30 PM–Members Preview Reception + Exhibition Tour
Bemis Center members are invited to a special preview of Monarchs including a private tour with exhibiting artists and Risa Puleo, exhibition curator and Bemis Center 2017 Curator-in-Residence.

6:30–9 PM–Public Opening Reception with Participatory Performance + ARTalk
The public opening reception begins with a community ceremonial ritual lead by exhibiting artist Sarah Rowe. Incorporating water, oil, and healing herbs, Omaha-based Rowe’s participatory performance invites audiences to consider clean water rights in the context of protests of the Dakota Access and Keystone XL Pipelines. The performance will be followed by
an ARTalk including Exhibitions Manager Alex Priest and Monarchs curator Risa Puleo.

Following the ARTalk, guests are invited to enjoy a casual reception celebrating the opening of Monarchs, on view at Bemis Center December 7, 2017–February 24, 2018. Exhibiting artist Nathan Young’s sound installation will provide the soundtrack for the evening.
