Milton's Work on Exhibit at the Seneca-Iroquois National Museum

From the Western Door to the Lower West Side with photographs by Milton Rogovin and poetry by Native American Eric Gansworth will be on exhibit at the Seneca-Iroquois National Museum in Salamanca, NY.

Exhibit Dates: April 14 - July 10, 2010
An opening reception will take place on the April 14th, exact times TBA. Milton Rogovin plans to be at the reception.

This exhibition coincides with a new publication of poetry by Eric Gansworth of Canisius College, Buffalo, NY, illustrated with Milton Rogovin’s photographs of Native Americans of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) community of Western New York and Ontario, Canada. The photographs are documents of contemporary life and the social history on the reservations outside of Buffalo, near the Cattaraugus, Tonawanda and Tuscarora reservations and the Lower West Side of Buffalo. Specific tribes include the Seneca, Mohawk and the Tuscarora. The photographs were taken between 1963 and 1993.

The book can be purchased online in the Rogovin Store.

  1. I love Milton Rogovin. I just saw some of his pieces at an exhibit at Phoenix Art Museum, and fell in love all over again. That man is such a great talent.
