Jan 5: Crisca Bierwart (Affiliate Associate Professor, Department of Anthropology, UW).

“Visible on Ancestral Lands: Mapping Contemporary Coast Salish Public Art.”

Dr. Bierwert will give an informal presentation (with visuals) about a website she is developing to map the public art work of contemporary Coast Salish artists, in collaboration with the artists.  This mapping is intended to make more visible not only the art work, but the histories and perspectives of the artists whose land we stand on here in this region.  Discussion of the project will review responses of artists and art promoters contacted to date, and strategies to engage public audiences.  Broader issues include the cultural politics of mapping and land-marking; and the practicing of public scholarship, advocacy and ally-ship.  Those who come will be invited to exchange experiences, engage in a critical examination of the project, and make suggestions for the project.  

You are welcome to bring a brown-bag lunch for this event.
