Video Title:
Vantage Point -- Rick Bartow, Deer Dancer for Hyacinth (2001) and From the Mad River... (2004--05)
Description:
Images of physical, spiritual, and psychological transformation figure prominently in the work of Rick Bartow (Wiyot), such as his 2001 drawing "Deer Dancer for Hyacinth." In his sculpture titled "From the Mad River to the Little Salmon River, or The Responsibility of Raising a Child" (2004-05), Bartow draws inspiration from his work mentoring troubled youth in an Oregon detention facility. Teeming with human faces and animals native to the Oregon coast, the sculpture speaks to the essential roles of family and community in the rearing of children. Bartow's work has been featured in "Vantage Point: The Contemporary Native Art Collection," through August 7, 2011, at the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.
