Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Fellowship
Nov. 14, 2015 - Feb. 28, 2016
Since its creation, the Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Fellowship has awarded 50 artists a total of more than one million dollars in direct support, produced nine exhibitions with accompanying scholarly catalogues, added by purchase more than 200 works of art to the permanent collection and promoted contemporary Native art and artists to a broad audience.
The 2015 Fellowship, Conversations, marks the ninth round of the program and the continuing tradition of Native expression. This year's fellows are Luzene Hill (Eastern Band of Cherokee), Brenda Mallory (Cherokee Nation), Da-ka-xeen Mehner (Tlingit/Nisga'a), Holly Wilson (Delaware Tribe of Western Oklahoma/Cherokee), and invited artist Mario Martinez (Pascua Yaqui) (detailed description of fellows below).
You're invited to celebrate the opening of Conversations: Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Fellowship. The museum will honor the five Native Fellowship winners with an intimate gathering that celebrates their artistic accomplishments. Guests will also enjoy a thrilling performance by Indigenous. Following this, the museum will be enlivened with the Contemporary Arts Party featuring DJ Kyle Long, Indigenous, and Supaman.
