She Sang Me a Good Luck Song: The California Indian Photographs of Dugan Aguilar is an exhibition revealing the richness and vibrancy of Native California cultures. Aguilar’s photos defy the romanticized and melodramatic images by which Native people are often depicted. Ranging from portraits of military veterans, basket makers, and dancers to meditative landscapes, Aguilar’s work documents—and contributes to—the perseverance and renewal of Native California’s living, vibrant cultures.

 

This exhibition is a partnership with Exhibit Envoy, Heyday, and the Native Fund, curated by Theresa Harlan and artist Dugan Aguilar.
