Seminole Portraits: Reflections Across Time
February 28 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Broward County Library presents
Seminole Portraits: Reflections Across Time as part of the Speaker Scholar Series. This presentation introduces audiences to a variety of Florida Seminole portraits from the nineteenth century and how the portraits were used as propaganda to represent the Seminoles as a dying people.
Seminole Portraits: Reflections Across Time challenges this long-held belief to explore changing perspectives of Native Americans and the Florida Seminole. With a focus on portraiture over time, the rich history and continued vitality of the Florida Seminole is brought to life, including introductions to current Seminole artists throughout the state.
