Upcoming Exhibits in Roesch Library
'Standing Rock: Photographs of an Indigenous Movement'

Postponed; originally scheduled for March 21–May 8, 2020, in the Roesch Library first-floor gallery.

During the recent Standing Rock resistance to stop the Dakota Access oil pipeline, Native American journalist Levi Rickert knew the largest Native American movement since Wounded Knee (1973) was unfolding. Rickert, the publisher and editor of Native News Online, covered the emergence of the movement from Standing Rock in North Dakota; from Washington, D.C.; and from the steps of Michigan’s capitol building. His photojournalism yielded over 1,500 photographs that capture the intensity of the movement. "Standing Rock: Photographs of an Indigenous Movement" provides a glimpse of the struggle for indigenous water rights and tribal sovereignty.

'Suffragists: And They Persisted!'

Aug. 7–Sept. 30, 2020, in the Roesch Library first-floor gallery; open during library hours

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote, the Miami Valley Art Quilt Network is presenting exhibitions of art quilts highlighting the women and men who fought for this amendment; how they worked for its passage; the amendment itself; and the timeline of ratification.
