Native American Heritage Celebration




White Bluffs Quilt Museum Celebrates Native American Heritage
 
This Program has been made possible by a grant from the City of Richland
and a Historic Preservation Grant from Benton County.
~
Our 2018 Celebration will begin with an exhibit at the Richland Library
October 1- 31, 2018
This exhibit includes a collection of quilt blocks designed to tell the story of the
Corps of Discovery as they searched for a continuous water route across the continent.
Lewis & Clark's mission was to map the entire route and record
as much data as they could about the flora, fauna and native peoples on their journey.
 
The expedition began on May 14, 1804 and ended September 23, 1806.
 
The exhibit includes Quilt blocks depicting the travel's of Lewis and Clark,
printed information describing the images and quotes from the Lewis and Clark Journal.
Baskets and Native American artifacts complete the exhibit.

Western Thunder, Friday, October 26, 6:30 pm
The Collected Works of Frank McCarthy
Art reproductions synchronized to epic music.
A collection of 100 original works of art with an hour of music.
Frank McCarthy's artistic approach is not to create a historical document, 
but a portrayal of a scene that has happened many times in many places in
the West. Each scene holds as much visual impact, detail, and action
as possible. Narration free – pure enjoyment. 58 minutes
Location: White Bluffs Quilt Museum
~
 Encounters, Friday, November 2nd. 6:30 pm
The Art of Bev Doolittle, with Native Wood Flute Music by Werner John.
Bev Doolittle's work reflects her love of horses, passion for the natural world
and her affinity for the Native American's spiritual relationship to the land
No narration – pure enjoyment. 50 minutes
Location: White Bluffs Quilt Museum
