The Art of the People: Contemporary Anishinaabe Artists
On view through February 28, 2021
Muskegon Museum of Art
Muskegon, Michigan

“The Art of the People” features artwork by nationally recognized and early career contemporary Native American artists in a wide array of media that combines cultural traditions, imagery, and themes. The invitational show appears concurrently at the Muskegon Museum of Art and Grand Valley State University Art Gallery.

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.
