“The exhibit is a really great cross-section of well-known people with some very moving pieces that really touch your heart,” said Rosalie Favell, whose artwork is displayed in the exhibit.
“Vantage Point: The Contemporary Native Art Collection” includes 31 works created by 25 artists. The artists represent almost 20 Native American tribes from the United States, Canada and Columbia. The media range from paintings, drawings and photography to video projection and mixed media installation.
The exhibit is organized around four themes: personal memory and identity, history and the contemporary urban experience, landscape and place, and cultural memory and persistence.
