Curiosity Talks: Beyond the Kitsch – The Pervasive Spirit of our Indigenous Creative Community

August 1 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm MST

Free

Thursday | August 1st | 5:30pm – 7:30 pm | Wilson Room

Throughout the Southwest, tourists and locals encounter a range of Indigenous art, from manufactured and imported cultural appropriations to fine art in galleries and museums. The state’s creative Indigenous communities are sometimes lost in what is popularly featured as Native American Art. In this presentation, Diné jeweler Nanibaa Beck will highlight contemporary Native American Art, focusing on eclectic indigenous creatives throughout Arizona and beyond. Beck draws examples from her friends, family, and extended kin to demonstrate the diversity of artistic talents, mediums, and philosophical approaches of Indigenous artists. The presentation will leave participants with a better appreciation for the range of Native American creativity the state has to offer.

This free program is made possible by Arizona Humanities.
