Wknd Update: From The Met


Good Evening creative peeps! This weekend we will go into something different this time. This is like an art series. The Metropolitan Museum of Art features Arts and Activism: Environmental Protection and Contemporary Indigenous Art. For those interested, watch the over hour long video below…

From the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s YouTube channel

Join featured artists and the curator of the exhibitions “Water Memories” and “Art of Native America: The Charles and Valerie Diker Collection” for a conversation exploring the significance of water to diverse Indigenous peoples and Nations in the United States, as expressed through historical, modern, and contemporary art. Delve into the artists’ artistic processes while examining the ongoing work to protect water and land, aesthetic activism, and the unique challenges contemporary Indigenous artist-activists face.
