There will also be a broad variety of events throughout the week including an Adult Education Symposium and Family Days. For complete information, see the schedule below:
LOS ANGELES EXHIBITION SPECIAL EVENTS SCHEDULE:
FEBRUARY 23 – MARCH 2, 2011
EXHIBITION OPEN to PUBLIC
10am – 5pm DAILY
“SINGING OF THE PAINTINGS”
4pm – 5pm DAILY through February 28
In Indigenous Australian culture, music and art are intertwined, it is the way tradition, history, maps to family gathering places and water sources are handed down. In this tradition, many of the NOMAD TWO WORLDS artists can “sing” the “story” of their paintings, a beautiful and powerful experience for all.

ADULT EDUCATION SYMPOSIUM
5-7:30 pm (Wednesday)
Donna Karan/Urban Zen Foundation discusses the importance of preserving culture. Professor Jessica Cattelino from UCLA analyzes the everyday conditions of indigenous peoples from an anthropological perspective. Cattelino weaves together diverse stories -- from Native American casino gaming to Aboriginal Australian arts movements – to show how indigenous cultural projects go hand-in-hand with economic and political power. Dr. Richard Walley, Nyungar elder from Western Australia, speaks on the challenges faced by Indigenous cultures in the modern world.
