History Fort Lauderdale, celebrating 60 years of stewardship of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will partner with the Seminole Tribe of Florida’s Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum to present “Chono Thlee: Sparking A New Era in Seminole Art” at the New River Inn History Museum from Sunday, November 6, through Tuesday, January 10.  The exhibit, launching during Native American Heritage Month, highlights new contemporary works by indigenous artists that analyze elemental relationships for the future based on community foundations of trust, truth, dignity and integrity. The exhibit opens to the public on Sunday, November 6, at 1 p.m., with music, storytelling and an artist meet and greet.  A VIP art talk will be held on Saturday, December 3, at 9:30 a.m., with complimentary admission being extended to Art Basel First Choice or Preview cardholders.

Curated by Tara Chadwick, “Chono Thlee: Sparking A New Era in Seminole Art” will showcase a variety of contemporary and traditional media including oils, acrylics, fiber, glass, metals, mixed media and digital art from 13 multigenerational Seminole artists: Tia Blais-Billie, Durante Blais-Billie, Nick DiCarlo, Jacob Osceola, Leroy Osceola, Daniel Tommie, Samuel Tommie, Shonayeh Tommie, Gordon Wareham, Krystle Young, Brian Zepeda, Corinne Zepeda and the late Jimmy Osceola.

“Chono Thlee: Sparking A New Era in Seminole Art” is one of several insightful multicultural experiences at History Fort Lauderdale. Permanent exhibits include “From Dugouts to Dream Yachts,” a visual narrative weaving the story of the ever-changing use of Fort Lauderdale’s waterways by following the strokes of the first people to today’s sightseers, “The Bryans of Fort Lauderdale” which allows visitors to experience the story of the City of Fort Lauderdale as told through the pioneer family that shaped its development from an agricultural outpost in 1896 to a bustling city in the 1920s to its current status as a leading Metropolis, “Juliette Lange: A Portrait of a Mezzo Soprano,” a fashion and lifestyle glimpse of the socially prominent Fort Lauderdale resident with a lauded career as a star vocalist of musical comedy, plus “Archaeology of the New River” and a multitude of stories and photos sharing the history of other founding families of Fort Lauderdale. The nonprofit museum also hosts a variety of yearly multicultural exhibits highlighting African American, Caribbean, Latin and women artists sharing their views of history and an artists’ collective collaborative space.

“Chono Thlee: Sparking a New Era in Seminole Art,” is sponsored, in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward County Cultural Council and Visit Lauderdale – Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau. With additional support from Seminole Tribe of Florida, Inc.

Entry to the exhibit is free with general admission – $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID).
