Pop! Popular Culture in American Indian Art

Monday, March 8th, 2010

The Heard Museum opens Pop! Popular Culture in American Indian Art April 16 and a few of my pieces will be included.

About the show: pop culture and innovation collide with traditional art forms and cultures in artwork that reflects contemporary issues and imagery in an often comedic, tongue-in-cheek way. Fashion, graffiti art, comics, pottery and beadwork are formats for contemporary American Indian artists who incorporate imagery from popular culture into their work. The show will remain on display through April 2011.
