Celebrating Three Decades at Crow’s Shadow and Looking to the Future of Native American Printmaking with Executive Director Karl Davis and Master Printer Judith Bauman, curator Rebecca J. Dobkins (Hallie Ford Museum of Art), and Professor Marwin Begaye (University of Oklahoma’s School of Visual Arts). Moderated and presented by the Association of Print Scholars.
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.
Join us for a conversation in which we learn about the legacy, impact, and future of the work of Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts
