Curator Joe Horse Capture loves that his job allows him to work with things his ancestors created. What kind of things did your ancestors create? Is there a museum or gallery you can visit to see evidence of your heritage? Is your family very aware of its history or heritage? What kinds of things do you do to celebrate it? How does Joe Horse Capture bring himself, his history, to his art? Could you see yourself doing this type of art? Why or why not?
Curators work to collect objects or pieces of art that tell a story or represent a group of people. Curate your own exhibit by collecting objects created by people in your family, your school, or your neighborhood. What story is told? What kind of objects have people created?
