3 in 30: Traditions renewed: Native artists working today
Tue, Nov 5, 11 am–11:30 & Thu, Nov 7, 6:30–7 pm | Meet at Visitor Services
The term Native America calls to mind a point in this country’s past; a bygone era where indigenous Americans were seen as obstacles to the realization of the Euro-American dream. Far from disappearing into the past, today’s indigenous artists are actively writing new chapters of their story while revising the old ones. Working in what can be considered “traditional” mediums, these artists are adding vibrant, creative voices to the conversation about what it means to be an American.
