Artists Conversation: Public Art, Native Art Expressions and Ecological Thinking
Multidisciplinary Native artists Erin Genia (Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate/Odawa) and Elizabeth James-Perry (Aquinnah Wampanoag), whose practices span public art, textiles, jewelry-making, and other mediums, will join in dialogue over the values that guide their work, from cross-cultural and Native art expressions to traditional ecological knowledge and the impact of climate change. Elizabeth James-Perry is currently mentoring Erin Genia in hand-sculpted traditional wampum art, through the Massachusetts Cultural Council Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program and is also a marine biologist.

This talk is co-sponsored with the Tufts University Art Galleries and the School of the Museum of the Fine Arts and is presented in conjunction with Erin Genia's commissioned public art mural Wakpa, located in the Jackson Gym parking lot, on view through the 2021–22 academic year.
