BROCKPORT, NY—A traveling art exhibit will shed light on a dark portion of history when it comes to The College at Brockport, State University of New York, campus on Oct. 24.
The exhibit features the work of Mohawk artist R.G. Miller, whose artwork is a testament to his experiences at the Mohawk Institute Indian residential school in Brantford, ON from 1953 until 1964. It consists of powerful art that details the trauma he experienced at the Indian Residential school—where he was physically, verbally, and emotionally abused. Miller is one of tens of thousands of survivors of the abuse that took place at the school who are living in Canada today.
The exhibit comes to Brockport through the efforts of Neal Keating, assistant professor of Anthropology, and others. It will be at the Tower Fine Arts Gallery from Oct. 24 until Dec. 9 and is free of charge and open to the public.
