The exhibition will highlight the work of seven contemporary native artists in honor of Indigenous Peoples Day. These include; Melanie Yazzie (Navajo); Joe Feddersen (Colville); Sara Siestreem (Coos/Lower Umpqua); John Hitchcock (Comanche); Duane Slick (Meskwaki); Jason Clark (Creek/Algonquin) and Molly Murphy-Adams (Oglala/Lakota).
Each of these artists represents a unique, beautiful and thought-provoking vision encompassing their cultural heritage and beliefs. The exhibition highlights a range of visual expressions, from large-scale woodcut statements about climate change to lithographs expressing protest, resistance and resilience. Other works in the exhibition explore myths and legends and still others investigate culture patterns of beadwork or basketry. Together these seven artists embody a wide array of style and vision.
This darkly comic imagining of a post-apocalyptic near future, a contemporary play the New York Times called “downright brilliant,” spans over 80 years and at least as many pop-culture references. A group of strangers becomes a traveling theatre troupe performing remembered episodes of “The Simpsons” as a way to make ends meet in the barter economy that rises from the ashes of American consumerism. Mr. Burns celebrates the human need to connect again and again through shared stories.

A big ol’ rant fest to discuss things that simply suck or are broken and need to be fixed ASAP. At this informal ideation session we’ll bitch and moan and then translate our frustrations into solutions for the problems that bug you the most.
From design fails to climate change, bring your anger and with a little ambition, we’ll come up with solutions that could make life easier for everyone! See you there, doors at 4 p.m. at the Innovation Factory on the second floor of the UC above the Bookstore.
UM’s Communities of Excellence (CoEx) are transdisciplinary areas of research, creative scholarship, teaching, study and community partnerships that allow for elasticity across degree paths and scholarly collaborations. The Communication and Artistic Expression CoEx will explore opportunities for collaborative work to engage faculty, students and the broader community. We value diverse input as the CoEx develops.
