The Trickster Art Gallery's relationship with the Blackhawks will pay dividends for hockey fans this weekend by offering them a chance to get up close with the Stanley Cup while reliving some of the highlight's of last season's championship run.

The gallery, the only Native American owned and operated arts institution in the state, will host the Cup from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, along with a new photo exhibit showing the team's best photos from the Stanley Cup playoffs. Trickster is located at 190 S. Roselle Road in Schaumburg.

Admission, which includes a chance to take a photograph with the Cup as well as tour the entire gallery, is $10 for adults and $5 for children.

The Cup's appearance at Trickster stems from the gallery's relationship with the Blackhawks organization, said gallery Chief Operating Officer Joseph Podlasek. The gallery provides public education about the history of the Blackhawks name and "Indian head" logo.

"It's been a genuine relationship," Podlasek said. "We tell the story and the importance behind what the logo depicts, which is Chief Blackhawk."

The Cup also made a stop at Trickster following the Blackhawks' 2010 championship, drawing 1,500 fans to the gallery. Podlasek expects a similar turnout Saturday.

Besides the Stanley Cup and photo exhibit, visitors Saturday can also view the "Zombie Gardening" exhibit, based on a tongue-in-cheek guide to foraging during a zombie apocalypse written by Lakota author Adam Kessel; and "50 Years of Powwow," an exhibit featuring a full-size teepee, drums and dance regalia used during powwows.
