This workshop will focus on the museum’s major Fall 2023 exhibition, Continuity, Innovation, and Resistance: The Art of Peter B. Jones. The exhibition features ceramic works by Onondaga artist Peter B. Jones that comment on and actively resist the impact of colonialism on Haudenosaunee communities, past and present. Jones’ art presents Haudenosaunee culture as a continuum that has resisted and persisted despite serious attacks on Haudenosaunee lands, sovereignty, and cultural identity. Under the direction of professors Sascha Scott and Scott Manning Stevens (Akwesasne Mohawk Nation), this exhibition was co-curated by students at Syracuse University, including Charlotte Dupree (Akwesasne Mohawk Nation), Eiza Capton (Cayuga Nation), Anthony V. Ornelaz (Diné), Ana Borja Armas (Quechua), and Jaden N. Dagenais. 

The workshop will provide Syracuse University faculty and graduate students with key information and pedagogical tools that will help them to teach from the exhibition.The workshop includes:    

  • An exhibition tour led by curators Sascha Scott and Scott Manning Stevens  
  • Interactive gallery activities that can be adapted for class use
