Tonto Revisited by curator and owner Tom Huff
Thursday, August 1, 2019
7:00PM – 9:00PM
Join us for an Opening Reception of Tom Huff’s Exhibit, “Tonto Revisited”. For generations the portrayal of Native Americans has been one of menacing warriors wielding tomahawks, knives, and bows and arrows. This imagery was found in posters, advertisements, toys, sports logos and more. On their own, these items can seem harmless however, when put together, the destructive nature of the imagery is apparent. Tom Huff’s collection of stereotypical “Indian Kitch,” brought together in one exhibit, will help to dispel the myths surrounding Native Americans and encourage a new understanding of Indigenous peoples.
