Bears Ears Exhibition in Gallery 4 at the Gilbert Museum

This exhibit draws together both a visual evocation of a newly declared national monument – Bears Ears, at the heart of the Colorado Plateau – and the voices of those who have fought to shape its future.

We are honored to have Stephen Strom, Eric Descheenie, and Alfred Lomahquahu join us at Gallery 4 in the Gilbert Museum to discuss Bears Ears on Tuesday, October 10 from 6pm to 8pm.

Eric Descheenie and Alfred Lomahquahu played key roles in establishing the Bears Ears Inter-Tribal Coalition. They will discuss the multi-year effort to have Bears Ears declared a national monument and ongoing efforts to protect the monument from rescission or contraction.
