1. Existence and Resistance @ The Hive
Lynette Haozous, Randy Barton, Thomas Breeze Marcus, and Thomas Greyeyes come from very different arts backgrounds and media, but they all share ties to the same culture and tradition. The four Native artists discuss indigenous spiritualism, philosophy, creativity, expressionism, activism and the quest for constant growth through their work, which will be on view tonight at The Hive.
Their work addresses misperception, commoditization, and resistance of Native culture, as well as the richness of tradition and background from which each is from. The Hive will be open tonight from 7 to 9 p.m.
