EXHIBITION: MOUND CITY

APRIL 11 - AUGUST 25, 2014

PUBLIC RECEPTION: APRIL 11, 6PM-9PM

Mound City, one of St. Louis’s nicknames, refers to the mounds made by the Mississippean peoples of this area 1,000 years ago. This community was the largest city outside of Mexico City, and a major influencer on other native nations on the continent. Artists in Mound City will explore traces of native cultures in our contemporary world, looking at issues ranging from disappearance and resurrection to the myths of American manifest destiny.
