Step-by-Step Instructions

The Miami Tribe of Oklahoma presents the

Eugene Brown Memorial Art Show

wišihtootaawi: Let’s Create!

The Myaamia Heritage Museum & Archive will host the Eugene Brown Memorial Art Show from June 25-June 28, 2019, in conjunction with the National Gathering Week. This show will be open to all Miami tribal citizens as well as their immediate family. Divisions and categories have been set to include varied artists, art forms, and styles. Prizes and special awards will be presented.

In the spirit of our late elder Eugene Brown, who wanted art and creativity to reach everyone, we hope to see as many community members as possible participate! Artwork should speak to the artist’s interpretation of their myaamia experience or identity, incorporating any aspect of myaamia language, culture, history, or heritage.
