Here & Now: Native Artists Inspired Opening at Burke Museum, Nov 22


November 22, 2014 – July 27, 2015

Here & Now: Native Artists Inspired showcases how today’s artists learn from past generations. The exhibit features 30 new works by contemporary Native artists, paired with historic pieces from the Burke Museum that artists identified as key to their learning.

Here & Now celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Bill Holm Center for the Study of Northwest Native Art, a global learning center that supports access to the Burke Museum’s Native art and artifact collections through research grants, programs, and publications.

Join us for an exploration of the dynamic relationship between past and present, collections and creativity, and artists and their ancestors.

“Creating these works is an extension of our apprenticeship with our ancestors.”
–Evelyn Vanderhoop, Haida weaver
