The traveling exhibition “The Ese’Eja People of the Amazon: Connected by a Thread” consists of photographs and daguerreotypes made by Andrew Bale and University of Delaware photography faculty Jon Cox, as well as artifacts from daily life that have been curated by Dr. Monica Dominguez Torres and Dr. Vicki Cassman. The show illustrates a worldview, a way of life and a heritage. It also illustrates the contemporary challenges facing these resilient people as Amazonia loses many of its indigenous cultures along with the deep knowledge and wisdom these cultures have of the interconnectedness of nature. After opening as part of Art Loop Wilmington on August 2, “Connected by a Thread” will continue on view in DCAD's Toni & Stuart B. Young Gallery from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays to Fridays through August 15.
