Opening Day of artist Vincent Filardi's tribute to Native American Indians. Exhibit entitled " Invisible Perspectives". The exhibit runs from Feb. 2 through March 12, 2015. An excerpt from the Artist's Statement: "My proposal for UCONN, put forward for consideration is the theme of the American Indian, my interest in there lives has been with me for as long as Ive had the opportunity to read about their communion with the Earth and all that reside. I became fascinated at the geometry of dress ware and how this alone would empower them as they made their way. In 1972 I read Dee Browns, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, this would change the entire scenery of my beliefs and I began to see the stories, as the American Indians look of how the American Frontier, was created. The great conquest of their land, the original Americans they”never” saw ownership to the vast horizons and yet the, Algonquin, Apache, Cheyenne, Dakota, Nez Perce, Utes, Poncas,, Navaho, Iroquois, Mohawk and others began to see the white man, consume and manipulate the land that their Fore Fathers lived for and their way of life, being destroyed right before their eyes. With focus on the great contribution they have given to Humankind"
