The Time is Now—IAIA Exhibition at Shidoni Gallery
Fri, May 18, 2018, 4:00 pm–6:00 pm| Free
The Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) exhibition The Time is Now is a glimpse into the IAIA Studio Arts Program and the work being created by the diverse and talented students. The IAIA Studio Arts Program offers students a flexible and comprehensive course of study leading to a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Through exploration of historical and contemporary art practices, students develop technical and conceptual skills essential for success. Studio work, critical thinking, and hands-on instruction by dedicated faculty are combined to foster development of artistic direction and is re-enforced by IAIA’s mission, “To empower creativity and leadership in Native Arts and cultures through higher education, life-long learning, and outreach.”
The art emerging from IAIA is at the forefront of contemporary Native art, and along with the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (MoCNA), encourages creative expression across the fields of arts and culture as an opportunity to engage, establish, foster, and cultivate in cross-cultural dialogue with communities at the local, national, and global level.
