Native Voices: Native People's Concepts of Health and Illness

Native Voices: Native Peoples’ Concepts of Health and Illness explores the interconnectedness of wellness, illness, and cultural life for Native Americans, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians. Visitors will discover how Native concepts of health and illness are closely tied to the concepts of community, spirit, and the land. This extraordinary exhibition is currently on display in the rotunda gallery of the National Library of Medicine in Bethesda, Maryland.Trickster Art Gallery continues to welcome all educators and general public to learn more about our culture from a first voice perspective to help create a better experience in the classroom and everyday life. Exposure to lesson planning, a Native way of life and health, while visiting you can also learn about the contributions of Native Veterans in the military, see a gallery of 1500 square feet of Native Veterans art, all in our "Wall of Honor" exhibit. Sharing exhibit space with the Native Voices is our "Walking through Native lands" exhibit designed for school tours, educators and the general public to learn and explore. This exhibit will help to launch an all-inclusive (everyone welcome) 2015 Wellness workshops and talking circles program which will also support the gallery’s veterans program that will be ready to launch in March 2015 with a full schedule for the year.


Dinner Detective Murder Mystery Show

The Dinner Detective is the largest, award-winning, interactive comedic murder mystery dinner show in the Chicagoland area. We are now running public and private shows in 34 cities across the country every week.  The shows are set in the present day.  Unlike other murder mystery dinner shows, here you will find no cheesy costumes, no recited campy dialogue and no hokey song and dance.  Our performers are dressed just like everyone else, leaving all of the guests to suspect who is a part of the show and who is not.  In many instances, guests are seated with the performers and don't even realize it until they die...the performers, that is!  Our Detectives proceed to interrogate everyone and find clues as more people die.  At the end of the night, prizes are awarded to the Top Sleuth who solves the crime.  Each ticket includes a reception with tray passed appetizers, mixed green salad, choice of entree (beef, chicken or pasta), dessert, award winning interactive Murder Mystery show, prizes and so much more.
