Young Artists Balancing Tradition with Contemporary Expression
A Friends of Indian Art Member Event

Museum of Indian Arts and Culture

Join us for a panel discussion on the challenges and difficulties facing three young artists as they express their vision through contemporary art while honoring their heritage and culture.  Terran Last Gun (Blackfeet) works in printmaking, photography, and painting.  He is best known for his bold, geometric works that reflect his Blackfeet history and cultural narratives.  Del Curfman (Crow) is a painter known for his work with tribal imagery and cultural exploration.  He investigates his heritage, tradition and humanity through his oil paintings.  George Alexander (Muskogee) is an artist who has created a thought-provoking body of work influenced by his deep appreciation of his own culture.  The imagery he uses comes from his own ideas and how he views the world as he wishes it to be.

Please note that you must be a member of the Friends of Indian Art in order to participate in FIA events. You can learn more about joining the friends group by visiting its page on the Museum of New Mexico Foundation’s website.
