The Visual Arts Center is proud to be partnering with Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts to show “Dog Head Stew – The Second Course” in both Idaho and Oregon.
The show was organized by print makers Elizabeth Klimek and Melanie Yazzie who invited 24 national and international visual artists to make hand-pulled prints with personal and political expression honoring or criticizing past and present representations of Native American culture. The artists work with traditional and contemporary print media and are from a variety of cultural backgrounds. The portfolio celebrates Native American traditions and cultural persistence, which over time and situation have been redefined, honored, manipulated, categorized and stereotyped, but not vanquished.
The show will be exhibited April 15-May 13 at Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts in Pendleton, Oregon, and on campus Aug. 22-Sept. 14 at the Visual Arts Center’s Gallery One in the Liberal Arts Building. Support for this project provided by the Arts and Humanities Institute at Boise State University.
