Pauline Sharp, a citizen of Kaw Nation and past vice president of the Kaw Nation Cultural Committee, will discuss the relocation project and what it means to Kaw Nation. This free event takes place in the Beren Gallery and everyone is welcome.  The talk is presented in conjunction with the exhibition, Lesley Dill | Wilderness: Light Sizzles Around Me, on display in the Polk/Wilson Gallery Aug. 5 through Dec. 2.
