The Shinnecock Cultural Center and Museum is set to present a new exhibition “Warrior Visions,” the art and photography of the late Jason “Tek” King on Thursday, August 1, through Tuesday, October 1.
The multimedia exhibition will include many of King’s works, including the ‘Hoka Hey’ series, a clothing series paying tribute to the American Indian Movement and Native Peoples’ struggles.
King, who passed away in 2012, enjoyed photography and used his camera lens to capture many beautiful images in his travels throughout Indian Country. Whether it was with a paintbrush, through his camera lens, in his music, or incorporated into his clothing line Evitan Couture, King expressed his desire to share this vision. Evitan Couture apparel and King’s photos will be for sale in the Museum’s Gift Shop.
The Shinnecock Nation Cultural Center and Museum serves as a regional source of information and significance as one of the premier cultural/historical institutions in the Northeast.
