Traveling art show Impacted Nations to be displayed at USD
The touring exhibition is a project of the national organization, Honor the Earth, which was established in 1993 to create awareness of and support for Native environmental issues. Using the arts, the media and Indigenous wisdom, Honor the Earth asks people to recognize the interdependency of people and the Earth.
The exhibit contains works by more than 40 noted Native American contemporary artists working in a variety of media, including Jaune Quick-To-See Smith, South Dakota artist Donald Montileaux and Buncky Echo-Hawk. Together, the artists offer varied interpretations of the dams, oil explorations, coal mining and nuclear projects which have impacted Native lands and communities. At the same time, some of the work offers an alternative vision for the future, revelations that include the sun and the wind.
"Impacted Nations" will be the featured exhibition of the 18th annual Oscar Howe Summer Art Institute at USD on June 15-27. The Institute brings together young Native American artists with a team of professional artists for intensive workshops in painting, printmaking and cultural studies. Based in the USD Department of Art, the Institute concludes on Friday, June 27 with a public reception and art sale from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The Main Gallery in the Warren M. Lee Center for the Fine Arts is open free of charge to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends. Tours and special showings during non-public hours are also available upon request. For more information about this exhibition, please contact John A.
