November 7: Duhesa Art Gallery Reception Aasgutú ádi (Forest Creatures)

In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, CSU’s Native American Cultural Center will host the Duhesa Art Gallery Reception Aasgutú ádi (Forest Creatures).

The Duhesa Art Gallery Reception will feature comments from the artists: Crystal Worl & Jennifer Younger

The title of this exhibit, Aasgutú ádi, translates to “forest creatures” in the Tlingit language. The exhibit encompasses the natural beings represented in the various artworks of this exhibition, but also refers to the Tlingit people. Utilizing their experience in various art materials, Crystal Worl, Jennifer Younger, and Alison Marks encourage the viewer to look at traditional art forms through different lenses. The culmination of their artwork demonstrates the subsistence of Tlingit culture into the work of contemporary artists. This exhibition embodies the vibrancy of Tlingit culture and the continuation of traditional design and technique into stimulating contemporary art forms.

This event is co-sponsored with Campus Activities and the Lory Student Center Arts Program.
