Icons of the Diné

Inspired by identity and life on the Navajo Reservation, artist Jonathan Nelson has created a series Diné (Navajo) icons. These graphic representations of iconic roles contrast with stereotypes of Native peoples as mascots and are meant to empower and honor the Diné and other Indigenous peoples.

The exhibit runs thru January 10, 2020. Free and open to the public.
