Rockwell Museum Red Dress Exhibit + Events

May 03rd, 2021 - May 14th, 2021
Location: Rockwell Museum, 111 Cedar Street , Corning NY

Native American women are more than twice as likely to experience violence than any other demographic and they are murdered at rates that are more than 10 times the national average, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. The crisis of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) is not new. It is part of the spectrum of violence experienced by Native American (Indigenous) Women. 

Red Dress Exhibit

In partnership with the Corning Native American Council and Corning Community College, The Rockwell Museum will display red dresses in our Southwest Lodge and in Buechner Park. The red dresses are a visual expression of grief for thousands of Native victims, serving as stand-ins for the thousands of native women who go missing or are murdered each year.  We invite you to take a walk on Market Street in Corning, N.Y. to see the Red Dresses.
