Exhibit: “Of This Place: Native Nations in the Rockford Region”

Burpee Museum’s newest contemporary exhibition is “Of This Place,” a collaborative effort between the Burpee Museum and Native American people from the Sac and Fox, Potawatomi, and Ojibwe Nations. The exhibition is curated by Starla Thompson (Forest Band Potawatomi) and generously brought to the community of Rockford through January 2023 by the Chicago Blackhawks Foundation and BMO Center.

Be inspired by contemporary and traditional artworks and learn about the histories of the represented Nations from their own cultural educators and artists. Experience the living cultures, languages, and history of the Native American people who are of this place.
