In this panel, contemporary artists Cara Romero (Chemehuevi photographer) and Marla Allison (Laguna Pueblo painter) team up with Dr. Barbara Mills, UA Regents’ Professor of Anthropology and Curator of Archaeology to discuss indigenous female-dominated arts and crafts of the Southwest and how artists and artisans of the past and present have drawn inspiration and power from the creativity of the matriarchs who came before them. The panel will explore the evolution of crafts from a historic perspective and how artists today, including Marla Allison and Cara Romero, build on the past legacies of others and how one generation has often built off the last to create new and contemporary crafts and artforms.
Admission to this discussion and the Art is the Seed exhibition is $5.00 per person & Free for Students with ID or Tribal members with ID, as well as Tucson Desert Art Museum members.
