This exhibition celebrates some of the critical roles Anishinaabe, Inuit, and Pueblo women fulfill in their families, their communities, the art world, and beyond. Rooted in contemporary and historical artworks, this traveling exhibition explores themes like mothering, making, art world success, spirituality, and continuity in visual culture across generations.

Spotlight Anishinaabe, Inuit, and Pueblo women artists include: Kenojuak Ashevak (Inuit), Kelly Church (Gun Lake Band of Pottawatomi/Grand Traverse Ottawa/Chippewa descent), Maria Martinez (San Ildefonso), and many more.

Vitality and Continuity: Art in the Experiences of Anishinaabe, Inuit, and Pueblo Women is organized by the Detroit Institute of Arts, Bonifas Arts Center, Dennos Museum Center, Midland Center for the Arts, and Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum.

This exhibition is one in a series of American art exhibitions created through a multi-year, multi-institutional partnership formed by the Detroit Institute of Arts as part of the Art Bridges Initiative.
