Visiting Artist Presentation: Dyani White Hawk

"White Hawk’s Artwork is a combination of modern abstract painting and traditional Lakota art forms. Some works are executed strictly in paint; others incorporate beads, porcupine quills, ledger paper, brass sequins and other materials. 

These works are intended to increase exposure and inclusion of Native American peoples and thought within our daily lives, to break down misconceptions and generalizations, and to reinforce the importance of Native voices within contemporary art."

This was a wonderful presentation that was well attended by students, faculty, and Marquette residents. Dyani White Hawk described her background and her work aesthetic accompanied by beautiful color photos. The Q&A session afterwards indicated that the audience was genuinely engaged with White Hawk's presentation and were interested in learning even more.
