Artist Talk | Wendy Red Star
Wed. Mar 7, 5pm
List Art Building, room 120

Artist Wendy Red Star works across disciplines to explore the intersections of Native American ideologies and colonialist structures, both historically and in contemporary society. Raised on the Apsáalooke (Crow) reservation in Montana, Red Star’s work is informed both by her cultural heritage and her engagement with many forms of creative expression, including photography, sculpture, video, fiber arts, and performance. An avid researcher of archives and historical narratives, Red Star seeks to incorporate and recast her research, offering new and unexpected perspectives in work that is at once inquisitive, witty and unsettling. Intergenerational collaborative work is integral to her practice, along with creating a forum for the expression of Native women’s voices in contemporary art.

Deadline: Fri. Mar 2

By working with adults from diverse creative backgrounds and careers, children realize their own creative potential and that creativity is a valuable skill that can lead to success. You’ll work one-on-one with your buddy alongside other buddy pairs during weekly after-school sessions. Over the course of 6-7 weeks, you’ll help your child create an imaginative costume and journal that reflect their unique interests, strengths and dreams. At the end, you and your buddy will showcase your collaborative creation in a special presentation, professional photo shoot, and exciting costume parade through the school. Then celebrate the difference you made with fellow mentors at a volunteer after-party! Learn more and apply here.
