“Ganondagan at the Gallery,” an historic fundraiser to benefit the non-profit Friends of Ganondagan will take place at the Memorial Art Gallery on Thursday evening December 6, in conjunction with the MAG’s upcoming exhibit celebrating contemporary Native and First Nations art, “Changing Hands: Art Without Reservation 3.” Co-sponsored by the MAG, this inspiring evening honors Native American culture and tradition as exemplified by Ganondagan, and promises to helps to inform and understand how art is an expression of culture.
The Ganondagan at the Gallery fundraiser begins at 6:00 pm. Tickets are $40/General and $100/Patron, and include an opportunity to view the exhibit; attend a multimedia presentation by G. Peter Jemison, Ganondagan State Historic Site manager and one of the exhibit’s featured artists; watch a performance by traditional Iroquois social dancers; participate in a silent auction; and enjoy coffee and dessert. The $100 Patron ticket also includes a 5:30 preview tour led by Jemison and a wine/tapas voucher. (Wine and tapas will be available for purchase.)
