Its Honor is Here Pledged — September 9–October 12, 2016
For her exhibition at AVA, Adams [shows] a selection from her Broken Treaty Quilt Series and a series of digital prints inspired from her Smithsonian Fellowship. The quilts are a part of a series that speaks to the broken treaties that were written by the United States government and signed by Native American Tribes. Adams states: “These pacts promised the tribes money and power in exchange for the rich land they called home for possibly thousands of years. The Government took the land; however the Tribes were left penniless. My greatest hope is that this quilt inspires a movement of healing and prosperity. There is no room for broken treaties."
