Indigenous Peoples Art Exhibit

The American Indian Success Program is launching a Call for Art for the virtual 2021 Indigenous Peoples Art Exhibit on campus. This exhibit honors the diversity of our campus' indigenous community through art pieces that speak to our unique experiences, identities and stories.

Whether you create paintings, drawings, prints and beadwork or share your story through poetry, spoken word, song or another art form, please consider submitting your work to the virtual 2021 Indigenous Peoples Art Exhibit.

The show will run during the month of November, Native American Heritage Month. Artists’ pieces will be displayed in a virtual gallery and will be available for all of campus and the community to view during the month of November. Artists who submit work will have the option to sell pieces. The American Indian Success Program will not organize or facilitate any art sales, so it is the responsibility of the artist to arrange for art pieces to be sold and shipped to purchasers.
