IAIA A-i-R: Lillian Pitt—Brown Bag It at MoCNA
Wed, September 26, 12:00 pm–1:30 pm
Bring your lunch and join IAIA Artist-in-Residence (A-i-R) artist Lillian Pitt (Warm Springs Wasco/Yakama) as she discusses her art practice. Pitt was born on the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, Wasco, and Paiute Reservation in 1943. She is known internationally for her masks of clay, bronze, and cast glass, along with her sculpture, jewelry, and prints—which honor her ancestors from the Columbia River Gorge.
Pitt was the lead teacher for the Culture Bearers for the Confluence Project, but has retired to head up the Lillian Pitt Education Fund. Currently, she is on the Fisher’s Memorial Task Force which is overseeing a sculpture being built to help support river safety, as well as honor the fishers who have vanished in the rivers. Pitt lives and works in Portland, Oregon.
