In a distinctive post-expressionist and fusionist style, artist Jaune Quick-to-See Smith addresses the complexities of Native American identity, both on the personal level and as a communal experience. Many of her works draw attention
to important issues, including preservation of the environment, racial and gender stereotyping, consumerism, reservation life and war. On this special occasion, she will discuss Native American art and artists of today, with a brief history, while sharing her own creative process and in painting, printmaking, public art and social practice. Free event with general admission seating. Reservations not required. Reception follows talk.
Made possible by a generous gift from June Porter Johnson.
