Additional Background:

Our Maiden Migrations | An Ancestral Creative Journey is Part I of Eve’s Imprint, a two and three-dimensional mixed media installation by LiDoña Wagner that traces human migration from East Africa to all parts of the world. The installation encompasses over thirty original pieces of art including mixed media pieces and kinetic sculptures. It is accompanied by narrative panels and guided narration. Viewers are invited to explore their own ancestry, migration as a timeless reality and human impact leading to extinctions and climate change.
