Seminole Signatures Art Exhibition open!

Our latest exhibit, "Seminole Signatures", is now open and ready for visitors. Featuring art from over 20 classic and contemporary artists of Seminole descent, each piece has been hand-selected from our Permanent Collection to convey the endurance and strength of the Seminole people, and to speak to the importance of heritage and tradition in Mvskoke culture. The exhibition runs through June 12th, 2021.

Museum Acquires New Art

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."
