Founded in 1992 by artists James Lavadour and Phillip Cash Cash, Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts (CSIA) has become one of the leading art centers for Native American printmaking. Its world-class print studio offers a prestigious residency program that has hosted artists such as Raven Chacon, Jeffrey Gibson, Wendy Red Star, James Luna, Kay WalkingStick, and Marie Watt, among others, and whose editions are held in museum collections such as the Portland Art Museum, Wellin Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Library of Congress, and Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Over the last 30 years, in addition to its work in printmaking, CSIA has evolved its mission to boast an impressive array of educational, social, and economic development programs, including community-driven workshops for Native and Indigenous Traditional Arts such as basket making, beading, and the crafting of horse regalia. In many ways, Crow’s Shadow provides a platform for Native artists to connect with the mainstream art world and for non-Native participants an avenue for cross-cultural understanding.
