Free First Saturday: Generations | Walker Art Center
November 4 @ 10:00 AM - 3:00 PMFree
What do we carry within us and pass along through our family and community bonds? Connect with stories of origin, self, and culture through the work of visiting filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin (Abenaki) and a reading of the new children’s book Where We Come From with the authors.
In Where We Come From, authors Diane Wilson, Sun Yung Shin, Shannon Gibney, and John Coy explore personal histories and what unites all of us as humans.
A program in the Walker Cinema honors Obomsawin, an artist and prolific filmmaker whose career has continually celebrated and advocated for Indigenous life, children, and future generations. Obomsawin will introduce a special selection of her short films presented onstage at 1 pm. More of the artist’s documentary portraits preserving Indigenous cultures will be on view in the Mediatheque throughout the day.
Free First Saturday features free gallery admission on the first Saturday of every month. Gallery admission tickets are available in advance online and on-site on the event day from the Main Lobby desk; quantities are limited. Free admission 10 am–5 pm; activities 10 am–3 pm.
