Hartwick College’s Yager Museum of Art & Culture announces it has opened two new exhibitions, and set its hours for the summer season.
Contested Identities: Images of Native Americans, 1880-1930, draws on compelling photographs from the Museum’s Falconer Collection to illustrate the struggles of Native Americans in retaining their cultural identity in the face of government efforts to assimilate them into general American culture.
Black Lives at Hartwick Then and Now is an exploration of the history of African Americans and African-American Life at Hartwick Seminary and Hartwick College from the 19th century to the present. The exhibition features photos and documents from the College’s Paul F. Cooper Jr., Archives and artifacts from the Museum collections.
Exhibitions continuing on view during the summer include:
The Museum will be closed through May 31, reopening for the summer season on June 1. From June 1 to July 31, it will be open Wednesday through Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., after which the Museum will be closed until the start of the College’s fall semester on August 22.
The Museum is closed Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays and College holidays.
