Museum Center Features Cherokee Language, Art

Nearly one hundred Cherokee artists worked together to create “Generations: Cherokee Language Through Art,” a traveling exhibit that opened June 30th at the Museum Center at Five Points in Cleveland, Tennessee.  The exhibit will be on display until October 15th.

In the exhibit, artists took symbols from the Cherokee syllabary invented by Sequoyah and transformed them into paintings, drawings, mixed-media pieces and other works of art.
