2017 Waponahki Student Art Show closed December 2017
A collaboration of Maine Indian Education and the Abbe Museum
The Waponahki Student Art Show celebrated its 16th year in 2017 by bringing together a wonderful variety of art created by Passamaquoddy, Penobscot, Maliseet, and Micmac students from early childhood education through high school. The styles, media, and images vary throughout the exhibition, but place, culture, and identity have a strong presence in these original works.
Special thanks to:
