How can artists use art to open people’s eyes—helping them see and appreciate the world in a different way?

Join us as artist G. Peter Jemison discusses his work in MAG’s newest exhibition “To Help People See”: The Art of G. Peter Jemison (March 12, 2021–November 14, 2021).

Through his art, Jemison has explored a variety of topics, from creating political works that portray contemporary social commentary to those that reflect his relationship with the natural world.

Multimedia artist G. Peter Jemison (Seneca, Heron Clan), has had a career that spans decades and nations, influencing generations of contemporary Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists. Jemison has served as the Historic Site Manager, Ganondagan State Historic Site, whose Seneca Art & Culture Center is well known to area students and teachers.
