WUSF NEWS – An exhibition coming to the Ringling Museum in Sarasota, ‘Reclaiming Home: Contemporary Seminole Art’, showcases the work of Seminole, Miccosukee and mixed-heritage artists from Florida and the Seminole diaspora. Seminoles were one of the five Southeastern nations who were forcibly relocated in the 19th  century to present-day Oklahoma and beyond as part of the Indian Removal Act of 1830. With more than 100 artworks by 12 artists, the range of media includes painting, photography, woodworking, textiles, beadwork and installation art. Additionally, the exhibition also includes works on loan from Florida’s Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum of Seminole culture and history, located on the Big Cypress Indian Reservation.
