Lunchtime Reserach talk with Nicolas G. Rosenthal

 

Description: Much of what we know about this history of Native American art and the experiences of Native American artists focuses on New Mexico and Oklahoma, where schools, museums, galleries, and popular culture have long supported a market for Native American art.  Beginning in the 1960s, however, a vibrant, regional American Indian art scene developed in Northern California.   This presentation identifies the region as an understudied yet crucial site for the growth of Native American art, by locating Northern California within this context of a national movement by Native American artists and by discussing the work of those who lived and worked there, including Frank Day, Frank LaPena, and Harry Fonseca.
