Q&A with Jason Quigno and Virtual Tour

February 11 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us here for virtual tours of The Art of the People: Contemporary Anishinaabe Artists and a Q & A with guest curator Jason Quigno on February 11, 2021.

The Art of the People Virtual Tours

Virtual tours explore The Art of the People: Contemporary Anishinaabe Artists, curated by artist Jason Quigno and displayed at both the Muskegon Museum of Art (from December 10 through February 28, 2021) and Grand Valley State University Art Gallery (from January 11 through February 26, 2021).  Featuring nationally recognized and early career Native American artists, the exhibition showcases artworks in a wide array of media that combine cultural traditions and imagery with contemporary sensibilities and themes. Exhibiting artists include: Le’Ana Asher, Adam Avery, Shirley Brauker, Kelly Church, Wally Dion, Cherish Parrish, Jonathan Thunder, Robin Waynee, and Jason Wesaw. Incorporating sculpture, painting, ceramics, beadwork, mixed media, and photography, the exhibition explores the ways in which these artists express their experiences in both traditional and non-traditional media, techniques, and subject matter. Through representational and abstract imagery and design the artists address issues of craft, history, identity, social and political justice, and popular culture.

Videos were produced by the Muskegon Museum of Art in conjunction with the collaborative exhibition displayed both at the Muskegon Museum of Art from December 10 through February 28, 2021 and Grand Valley State University Art Gallery from January 11 through February 26, 2021.  Video production by Stories by CL. Videos will be available February 11, 2021.
