Reflections Across Time: Seminole Portraits
November 5 @ 2:00 pm
Folklorist Annette B. Fromm presents a compelling story of how images and perceptions of Native People, especially the Florida Seminole, have been manipulated in the past, as well as how the Seminole have been represented by artists from their own community toward the end of the 20th century and into the 21st. To illustrate this significant change, she discusses about the work of renownes 19th- and 20th-century Euro-American artists such as George Catlin and Edward Curtis and James Hutchinson, as well as work by noted 20th-century Florida Seminole artists. This lecture is based on an exhibition jointly developed by the Frost Art Museum at Florida International University and the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum.
Annette B. Fromm is a museum specialist and folklorist who has worked in museums in Ohio, Oklahoma, and Florida over the past 40 years with a focus on topics including cultural diversity and historic preservation. She has taught anthropology and museum studies at the University of Tulsa and museum studies at Florida International University for more than 10 years. She is the past chair of the Florida Folklife Council and the past president of the International Committee for Museums of Ethnography.

Funding for these programs and related exhibition are provided in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with the Historical Society of Central Florida.
