Biographical / Historical:
Visual Power: 21st Century Native American Artists/Intellectuals is a traveling exhibit curated by Dr. Pheobe Harris for the United States Department of State consisting of 26 posters. The exhibit was developed as an outgrowth of a 2003 College Art Association panel chaired by Harris titled "Native American Artists/Intellectuals: Speaking for Ourselves in the 21st Century." Working together with Evangeline Montgomery (Senior Program Officer of the State Department's Cultural Programs Division) and Ceasar Jackson (Project Designer for the Cultural Programs Division), Harris selected 12 Native American artists whose work would be viewed in U.S. embassies around the world. The exhibit was put together in a poster format with each poster featuring a photo of the individual artist, one example of their work as well as an artist statement.
Provenance:
Gift of the U.S. Department of State and Dr. Pheobe Farris, 2007.
