Artist Jaune Quick-to-See Smith

October 17, 2018, 6:00 PM

Free

The Colby Museum is pleased to welcome artist, curator, and educator Jaune Quick-to-See Smith to deliver the 2018 Miles and Katharine Culbertson Prentice Lecture. One of the most acclaimed Native American artists working today, Smith considers herself a cultural art worker, underscoring her social activism and her commitment to the preservation of Native American culture.

Smith, a member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Nation of Montana, is based in New Mexico and creates paintings and prints that combine appropriated imagery from commercial slogans and signage, art history, and personal narratives. Her multifaceted work addresses today’s politics, human rights, and environmental issues with humor, and is grounded in
themes of identity.
