Virtual Tour of Elders Paintings
In Chickasaw culture, elders are revered for their knowledge and courage. James Wallace, director of visual arts, media and design for the arts and humanities division, guides viewers through a virtual tour of Listing to our Elders, the third in a series of portraits by acclaimed Chickasaw artist, Mike Larsen. Larsen and his wife, Martha, met with each elder to learn their unique stories. Larsen's paintings both share and preserve these stories.
