Shake Rattle & Roll
“Rattles are spiritually sacred instruments used by the majority of North American Indians. Rattles are used in religious ceremonies, rituals, feasts, and healing ceremonies as well as social dances and gatherings. Rattles are used as a form of communications, through prayer and ritual, with the spirits. The rattles that I make are an extension of this tradition intended to reflect the use of 21st century materials in making contemporary rattles from modern sources.”

Looking Forward Through The Past: Contemporary Native American Art
Native artists today are rooted in tradition but create dynamic cross-cultural dialogues examining our past and reinterpreting our shared future. This exhibition connects early transitional artists such as Stephen Mopope and Pop Chalee to formative artists of the 20th century such as Fritz Scholder and George Morrison with important artists of today such as Jaune Quick-to-See Smith and Tony Abeyta. Through these diverse voices, we witness a continuing narrative of ancestral knowledge and cutting-edge progress.
