Multiple Horizons Art Writing Workshop
Saturday, February 27, and Sunday, February 28

As Central California Native artists become more visible on the global art scene, we need voices from within the community who are intimately connected with our regional cultural views to represent our work accurately through the written word. This workshop is part of a larger effort to build the capacity of our regional native artists and build a pool of confident native art writers.

Hosted by c:a+m in conjunction with First American Art Magazine’s We Have Words for Art: A Symposium on Writing about Art by Indigenous Peoples of the Americas.
