The Colby Museum is pleased to welcome artist, curator, and educator Jaune Quick-to-See Smith to deliver the 2018 Prentice Lecture. One of the most acclaimed Native American artists working today, Smith considers herself a cultural art worker, underscoring her social activism and her commitment to the preservation of Native American culture.
Smith, a member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Nation of Montana, is based in New Mexico and creates paintings and prints that combine appropriated imagery from commercial slogans and signage, art history, and personal narratives. Her multifaceted work addresses today’s politics, human rights, and environmental issues with humor, and is grounded in themes of identity.
Free and open to all.
The Miles and Katharine Culbertson Prentice Distinguished Lecture is cosponsored by the Colby Museum, Colby’s Center for the Arts and Humanities, and the Art Department.
