Seminole Signatures

The Seminole Nation Museum would like to invite everyone to view their latest art exhibition, “Seminole Signatures.” Featuring art from over 20 classic and contemporary artists of Seminole descent, “Seminole Signatures” is a collection of works from the museum’s permanent collection and is designed to reflect and celebrate the ingenuity of the tribe’s artists and artisans. The show comprises approximately 40 pieces of art, including painting, sculpture, jewelry, pottery, beadwork, and finger-weaving, and boasts many of the Seminole Nation’s most notable artists.

A recurring theme in the “Seminole Signatures” art exhibition is heritage and the enduring tradition of handing down one’s knowledge to the next generation. This is shown in how the exhibit encourages generations of each family to share creative space within the same gallery, such as Jerome Tiger and his daughters Lisa and Dana Tiger, E. Joshua Jr. and his brother Lee Joshua, and Enoch Kelly Haney and his father, Woodrow Haney. The significance of legacy is also present in the pottery of Mike Daniels and the stunning jewelry of Kenneth Johnson, both of whom incorporate Mississippian designs and techniques that pre-date modern tribes by centuries.

As the Seminole Nation Museum continues to grow its collection of art throughout the year, permanent collection exhibits such as these make it possible to share recent additions to the gallery as well as pieces donated by private collectors that have never been displayed to the public. “Seminole Signatures” will be open to the public until Saturday, June 15th, 2024. Admission is always free.
