Home: Contemporary Indigenous Artists Responding

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. ­— A visual arts exhibit titled “Home: Contemporary Indigenous Artists Responding,” will be on display through Aug. 31 in the Walter and Dori Goldstein Music and Media Center, second floor West Pattee Library, University Park campus.

The exhibit gathers the work of 12 Indigenous artists working in printmaking, who each adopt a unique perspective from which to consider the ideas of community, place and belonging.

Organized by Melanie Yazzie, professor of art at the University of Colorado at Boulder, this exhibition demonstrates an Indigenous relationship to home and homeland, enmeshed in a history of defense, sacrifice, resiliency and redefinition. The exhibition includes a print and an original essay by Assistant Professor of Art Kevin Slivka, who was instrumental in bringing this collection to Penn State.

An interactive iPad kiosk accompanies the exhibit, offering biographical information about each artist, as well as complementary supplemental material related to the collection.

Other contributing artists include Norman Akers, Neal Ambrose-Smith, Ivy Hali’imaile Andrade, Corwin Clairmont, Joe Feddersen, Alexander Swiftwater McCarty, Tony Ortega, Sue Pearson, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, C. Maxx Stevens, Glory Tacheenie-Campoy and Melanie Yazzie.
