Native American Heritage Month celebrates the opening of a new exhibition of work by contemporary Native American artists in the Lory Student Center Duhesa Lounge.

The focus will be centered around the various traditions of North America. This particular exhibit will be a mix of various things:

  • Pottery
  • Dance regalia
  • Sculpture, etc.

Highlighting the creativity and passion of these living artists, the exhibit continues the celebration of Native American cultures throughout its stay at CSU. Ceremonies include Drum Group performances, and the new exhibit will feature artwork selected from various Native American artists.

Duhesa Lounge: Showcasing Native American artwork

The Lory Student Center's Duhesa Lounge (located on the second floor lobby and east lounge) has been created to acknowledge the significance of the Native American heritage in this country, particularly in Colorado and the southwest Region.

The intent is to provide a permanent and prominent showcase for the artwork derived from this culture for the enjoyment and education of all who come to the center, provide a quiet place for study, reflection, and relaxation, and provide an environment for appropriate programs such as poetry readings and musical offerings.
