The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture is opening a new arts and cultural hub on the third floor of King Street Station this winter and the inaugural exhibition will be yəhaw'.

The title of the exhibition, yəhaw̓, is drawn from the Coast Salish story of Native people from all tribes uniting around a common cause and lifting up the sky together. In the spirit of the story, this exhibition will celebrate the depth and diversity of Indigenous art made in the Pacific Northwest. In preparation for the exhibition, curators Tracy Rector (Seminole/Choctaw), Asia Tail (Cherokee Nation), and Satpreet Kahlon opened a call for artwork (closed on April 20, 2018) in any media by Indigenous creatives living in the Pacific Northwest.

All Indigenous creatives who applied will be included in the exhibition. The exhibition will be a collective portrait of Native America, including creatives of all ages and stages in their careers, from many tribal affiliations, working in a variety of creative mediums. yəhaw̓ celebrates all Native makers, and actively challenges the false divides between fine art and craft, Urban and Reservation, contemporary and traditional. For more information, including guidelines, eligibility, and the application please visit yehawshow.com.

The exhibition is generously sponsored by the Office of Arts & Culture and supported by Na'ah Illahee Fund. Opening sometime in Winter 2018, admission will be free.

The paintings and photos in this exhibit give voice to youth in our communities who want to have a public dialog about mass incarceration and abolition. Their creativity seeks answers to the questions: How can we create a society healthy enough that we do not need prisons? What does it mean to be free?
