'Transfusion': An Exhibit of Works by Contemporary Native American Artists

Mitchell Museum of the American Indian (map) 3001 Central Street
Evanston, IL 60201

Description Transfusion,

an exhibit of works by four contemporary Native American artists, all in their mid-30s and with mixed ethnic backgrounds that are reflected in their art, is on view through September 4 at the Mitchell Museum of the American Indian, 3001 Central Street, Evanston.

Artists in the exhibit, which opened June 14, are Craig George, who is of Navajo and Thai descent; John Joe, who is Navajo, Zuni, and Irish; Chris Pappan, who is Osage (Kaw), Cheyenne River Sioux, and Scottish; and Debra Yepa-Pappan, who is Jemez Pueblo and Korean.

The four met as students at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, N. Mex., and all except George live in Chicago.


In the introduction to the exhibit catalog, artist and exhibit curator Yepa-Pappan writes, We, the artists, are American Indians of mixed heritage. We acknowledge the different cultures that are transfused in our own blood and make us who we are.
