The Art of the People: Contemporary Anishinaabe Artists
GVSU Performing Arts Center Gallery, Allendale Campus
January 11, 2021 - February 26, 2021

The Art of the People: Contemporary Anishinaabe Artists features artworks by nationally recognized and early career Native American artists that combine cultural traditions and imagery with contemporary sensibilities and themes. the exhibition explores how these artists express their experiences in both traditional and non-traditional media, techniques, and subject matter. Through representational and abstract imagery and design the artists address issues of craft, history, identity, social justice, and popular culture. By exploring and celebrating their past, these artists define who they are today.
