Please join us for the third annual David W. May Distinguished Lecture given by Matika Wilbur, Artist and Founder, Project 562.
Wednesday, March 20
5-6 p.m.
Humanities Center, Serra Hall 200
A member of the Swinomish and Tulalip tribes, Matika Wilbur has been photographing contemporary Native Americans as part of an epic documentary undertaking titled Project 562. When completed, it will include portraits from all 562 Federally recognized tribes in the United States. Her photography aims to resist the idea of “vanishing races” that has pervaded the narrative surrounding Native American portraiture since the late-19th century. 
A reception will follow in the May Gallery, Serra Hall 214. Event is free and all are welcome to attend.

This event is open to the public
