Yazzie Collaborating with Visitors in New Studio

This summer, the Denver Art Museum welcomed Melanie Yazzie, the native arts department's first artist-in-residence. The artist-in-residence program brings renowned American artists to the Denver Art Museum and utilizes a new studio space in the American Indian art galleries on level three of the North Building. The revitalized studio and Yazzie’s residency are made possible by a grant from the Americana Foundation.
