Visual Arts

Each year, the American Indian Community House hosts extraordinary exhibits of Indigenous artwork, photography, paintings, and installations. Native American artists featured in the exhibits are from the various Nations (tribes) throughout the country. Their artwork often reflects the struggles of the Native American community from a contemporary and personal perspective.

Many have achieved national recognition for their artwork that transcends cultural boundaries and deals with issues that are faced by all Americans today. This is often blended with an historical perspective that remains strong in a community where spiritual communing with the ancestors and mother earth is still prized and protected by the Elders through the oral tradition. This becomes the foundation on which the younger generations move forward in a vital and thriving cultural evolution.
