ON LINE From the Institute of American Indian Arts
This is IAIA’s premier and most important event to raise student scholarship funds, which are critical for student success. The event will feature an online auction of art pieces donated by some of IAIA’s award-winning artists, including Featured Artist, alumna Kathleen Wall (Jemez Pueblo), who is a 2021 New Mexico Governor’s Arts Award Winner for Excellence in the Arts. Wall created a collection of four works specifically for the event, titled Create Our Future—Honor Our Past. An extraordinary cohort of alumni artists contributed to these four works – Contributing artists include Tony Abeyta (Navajo Nation) ’86, Penny Singer (Dine) ’96, Diego Romero (Cochiti Pueblo) ’86, Jody Naranjo (Santa Clara Pueblo), Marcus Amerman (Choctaw), Kelly Church (Potawatomi/Odawa/Ojibwe) ’96, Wanesia Spry Misquadace (Ojibwe) ’04, and Linda Lomahaftewa (Hopi/Choctaw) ’65. In addition to the auction, the event will also include a live paddle call for direct scholarship support, and special appearances by IAIA students, alumni, and celebrity supporters.
