May 21, 2021 – Nevada City Rancheria Nisenan Tribe and California Heritage: Indigenous Research Project Presents ‘UBA SEO – NISENAN ARTS AND CULTURE. ‘UBA SEO opens this weekend in our new space in downtown Nevada City where we will feature gallery exhibits, retail, and workshop space. It is our desire to bring authentic Native American art and education to our community while focusing on Native California artists. We are excited to invite the public in for a special exhibit this weekend during our pre-opening. ‘UBA SEO is another amazing step toward raising the visibility of the Nevada City Rancheria and our continued fight to have our federal recognition restored. We are excited to share two shows in this exhibit on loan from The Judith Lowry Collection.

Indians, Irony, and Identity

An extensive collection of Indian kitsch invites us to explore and question stereotypes and identity.

The Dawn of the World

This exhibit features art made through the Works Progress Administration Federal Art Project. Both artists featured in this exhibit were non-native, yet their art intimately captures several Creation stories of California Indians.

Pre-opening weekend: Saturday/Sunday May 22/23 from 1pm – 4pm.
225 Broad Street Nevada City
Showing through Sunday, June 27th
