On Saturday, May 6, Native Arts Artist-in-Residence Gregg Deal will be painting a mural in the Native Arts Studio. Drop by to watch him work and chat about his process and inspiration!
During a previous residency (watch video below), Deal painted a mural titled Defiant to Your Gods, which now hangs near the Native Arts Studio in the Denver Art Museum's American Indian gallery. This time, Deal is planning a mural that "deals with images in stereotype, [with] typographical treatments using words that pertain to the previous subject, some portrait and more. It's going to be a smattering of a lot of different things."
Action X Community X Togetherness
Deal's mural work on Free First Saturday is part of this summer's Action X Community X Togetherness series, a one-of-a-kind collaborative project featuring Deal and two other former artists-in-residence: Walt Pourier and Melanie Yazzie. The trio of artists are focusing on the theme of art as a call to action and will be participating in talks, workshops, and hands-on artmaking all summer long.
Meet up with these artists during the following events:
