Kevin Red Star Artist Talk

UMFA Auditorium

Kevin Red Star. “Crow Indian.” 1975.

What a great way to spend time at the UMFA: Kevin Red Star will discuss his development as an artist and the themes in his work. Born and raised on the Crow Indian Reservation in Lodge Grass, Montana, Kevin Red Star’s family, heritage, and abundance of visual experience serve as his palette. He is considered a visual historian and ambassador for his Native Crow culture. His work is included in the exhibition, “Bierstadt to Warhol: American Indians in the West.”

As long as we’re spending this month dispelling myths about museums, we might as well do that here: what about museums being expensive, quiet places? Well, this is just one of many free events at the UMFA, and we love our artist talks to inspire dialogue, laughter, questions, and conversations. Come and join us!

You’ll notice that this event is getting an earlier start than many of our artist talks usually do–take note, because you won’t want to miss this!

This program has received funding from the Utah Humanities Council (UHC). UHC offers funding to empower individuals and groups in Utah to improve their communities through active engagement in the humanities.
