New Art Acquired

The Seminole Nation Museum is pleased to announce that it has recently acquired "After Church", an encaustic work by Muscogee (Creek) artist Bobby C. Martin. The painting is adapted from a photograph of his grandmother, mother (left), and aunt (right) taken on their farm "after church" on a Sunday afternoon many years ago.
As Martin states, "The(se) images provide a connection with my past, a way to remember and honor the generations that have come before—a way to commemorate our unique family heritage."
