I like addressing issues that are swept under the rug because they are uncomfortable to address. I think visually a piece can incorporate multiple views about an issue, social issue like racism, like gender issues, like misogynist views, about traditionalism, about inter social issues that need to be addressed and looked at.”

Help us secure a future in which Native American voices are heard through contemporary artwork. You can help by giving to the Eiteljorg, or by helping us in our search for artists for the next fellowship.
