Clearly Indigenous: Native Visions Reimagined in Glass - Exhibition

​Clearly Indigenous: Native Visions Reimagined in Glass
Wichita Art Museum
June 11th - September 10th, 2023

"The glass art created by American Indian artists not only is a personal expression of each artist but also is imbued with their cultural heritage. These artists have melded the aesthetics and properties inherent in glass art with their cultural ways of knowing. The result is the stunning collection of artworks presented here."
– Letitia Chambers, Curator

Visit the Wichita Art Museum for a groundbreaking, first-of-its-kind traveling exhibition "Clearly Indigenous: Native Visions Reimagined in Glass", which celebrates Native artists working in a dynamic medium. This exhibition features 115 works of art by 29 Native American artists and four Pacific Rim artists, including Preston Singletary (Tlingit). It also includes work by legendary glass art innovator Dale Chihuly, who worked with artist and educator Lloyd Kiva New (Cherokee) to set up the first hot shop at the Institute of American Indian Arts in 1974.

"Clearly Indigenous: Native Visions Reimagined in Glass" is organized by Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, and Curator Letitia Chambers, and is toured by International Arts & Artists
