In honor of Tamarind Institute's 50th Anniversary, the Harwood is pleased to present this exhibition of prints by contemporary Native American artists.

The exhibition includes work from two Tamarind projects.  Migrations:  New Directions in Native American Art, funded by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts, showcases emerging Native American artists working with a contemporary artistic vocabulary.  The second portfolio, We Are All Knots, includes lithographs completed in collaboration with The National Museum of the American Indian and the ART in Embassies Program, with the goal of broadening international understanding and appreciation for contemporary Native American art.  Also included are works from the Harwood Museum of Art's collection.

Exhibiting artists include Star Wallowing Bull, Steven Deo, Tom Jones, Larry McNeil, Nora Navanjo-Morse, Fritz Scholder, Ryan Lee Smith, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Marie Watt, and Emmi Whitehorse.

The University of New Mexico Art Museum in Albuquerque is also celebrating Tamarind Institute's 50th Anniversary, with an exhibition entitled Tamarind Touchstones: Fabulous at 50, Celebrating Excellence in Fine Art Lithography.   That exhibition is on view through December 19.

Fall 2010 exhibitions at the Harwood Museum of Art are generously supported by Maryann Evans, Albertsons, and Chef Currey Cooks.
