“The Women of the Ramapough Lenape Nation" is a creative collaboration between artist Lisa Levart and women from the Ramapough Lenape Nation to uncover, long-forgotten Lenape myths. Using these re-remembered sacred stories as a foundation, artist Lisa Levart has created photographs that inspire viewers to gain a deeper mindfulness and appreciation for fundamental traditions that have had a lasting impact on the Hudson Valley Community.
“The Women of the Ramapough Lenape Nation" uses art to draw viewers into an indigenous, nature-loving world, ancient, contemporary, personal and - unabashedly - matriarchal. This series was a finalist in the international 11th Julia Margaret Cameron Awards for Women Photographers, and was made possible with funds from the DeCentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and administered by the Arts Council of Rockland.
Albert Wisner Public Library will host the artist and women from Ramapough Lenape Nation on Sunday, April 28th at 1PM as they offer a panel discussion about the unique collaborative process of the series. A work-in-progress, documentary film by Myles Aronowitz (also about the project) will be screened as well. A well known photographer, Myles’ portraits of celebrities, artists, poets, musicians and writers have been published worldwide in magazines and newspapers including Time, People, Forbes and the New York Times, to name only a few. This is his first documentary.
Lisa Levart has been creating alternative photographic portraits of women embodying poetic myths for well over a decade. Her work has been shown in numerous galleries and public venues and is in the collection of the 9/11 Memorial Museum in NYC. A monograph of Levart’s work “Goddess on Earth; Portraits of the Divine Feminine” won a Gold Nautilus Book Award, and was named one of the 100 Best New Women's Spirituality Books by the California Institute of Integral Studies in 2018.Location:AWPL Community RoomAge Group:Adult, Teen
