Have you considered how artists use creative expression to inspire new layers of consciousness within themselves and their audience? Join us as Rose B. Simpson, an artist working in clay, sculpture, and drawing from Santa Clara Pueblo, NM, tells a story about her own explorations in truth, passion, and ultimately self-awareness. Three of her major works that explore these themes can be seen in the DAM’s current exhibition, Sovereign: Independent Voices.

Rose B. Simpson is currently the Native Arts Artist-in-Residence, working in the North building third level studio. She is developing works of artistic adornment that transform a series of ceramic busts. Simpson’s residency will culminate with a performance during the April Untitled in which seven models will be clothed in these adornments.

Come see and try on some of the works in progress, hear her story, and feed the dialogue.

Doors open at 5:30 pm.

$5 for Douglas Society members, $10 DAM members, $12 others, free for students with valid ID.
