MoCNA Celebrates Women’s History Month

Mar 6, 2018

The IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (MoCNA) recognizes Women’s History Month and honors contemporary Native and non-Native women artists, filmmakers, poets, writers, curators, art professionals, academics, and students who worked, exhibited, or presented at MoCNA in 2017. These amazing women continue to break barriers and bring a feminist discourse to the forefront. They are outstanding in their fields, hold important roles in our communities, and their narrative is echoed in their practice. We applaud and support contemporary Native and non-Native women in the arts.
