Sedona Arts Center - Sedona


Please Note: This talk will be held at the Sedona Arts Center, 15 Art Barn Rd, Sedona, AZ 86336

This panel discussion will focus on Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists’ use of cultural symbols, the history of Indigenous representation in art, and the dynamics between the dominant culture and Indigenous artists who rely on their art for financial success. This discussion will pose the questions:  What is Indigenous art? Who is harmed by the misuse of Native imagery in art? What are galleries’ and consumers’ responsibilities when selling/purchasing Indigenous art? This discussion will be moderated by Anthony Thibodeau, Director of Research and Collections at the Museum of Northern Arizona.


Panelists: Charles King, Susan Kliewer Dolan, Jason Garcia, Antonio Chavarria

This panel discussion is the third in a series of three being sponsored by the Museum of Northern Arizona, the Sedona Arts Center, and the Arizona Humanities.
