  Lecture: Jaune Quick-to-See Smith
   
Tuesday, April 18, 2017; 7:30 PM
University of Iowa Museum of Art

Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, an American Indian of the French-Cree, Shoshone, and Salish peoples, has said, “I see myself as a bridge builder. My art, my life experience, and my tribal ties are totally enmeshed. I go from one community with messages to the other . . . and I use humor and satire to present narratives on ethical treatment of animals, humans, and our planet. My work is philosophically centered by my strong traditional Salish beliefs.”

As Smith pursues her artistic vision, she incorporates several media and rich cultural references into works that are hallmarks of postmodern American art. Printmaker, painter, sculptor, collage artist, teacher, and activist—Smith represents aspects of the diversity of contemporary American life as it relates to indigenous ancestral cultures.

Quick-to-See Smith received her bachelor of arts degree in art education from Framingham State College and her MA from the University of New Mexico. She is the recipient of many awards and honorary doctoral degrees; her work is included in many collections, including those of the Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Denver Art Museum, Detroit Institute of Arts, Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth College, Weltkulturen Museum in Frankfurt, Germany, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
