Youth Mural Unveiling & Open House
August 26 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm$25
Join us for an evening packed with exciting unveilings of new experiences at the Mitchell Museum!
This premium event is open to the public. Admission is free for Mitchell Museum members and Tribal Citizens; $25 for non-members. Be among the first to witness the unveiling of our new mural and meet the 9 young artists that created it. The mural is part of a collaboration with St. Kateri Youth Circle, a non-profit that provides programming on Native American values and traditions for Native youth in the Chicago area. We will also be revealing our new online exhibit that highlights the exceptional children’s books Atika’s Medicine and I’m Not A Costume by author Maria Des Jarlait (Arikara, Ojibwe), who will also be on hand to share her stories and sign copies of her books for attendees.
The evening will also include food catered by Native American Foods and casual tours of our new Indigenous Medicine Garden as well as our Collections!
We are excited to announce two new perks for our all our members: Exclusive member walking tours and checking out books from our library!
