First Annual Visions for the Future Boulder Art Show a Success!
On November 18th, NARF hosted the First Annual Visions for the Future Boulder Art Show. The goal of the art show was to raise awareness for NARFs work and to bridge generations and communities in the struggle for Native American rights through the celebration of contemporary Native American art and culture. Some of the most exciting and dynamic new Native American artistic talent was exhibited at the show along with a featured performance by Culture Shock Camp, a Pawnee/Seminole hip hop group. More than $23,000 was raised for NARF from proceeds from art sales, our silent auction, donations, and ticket sales.
The amount of talent displayed at the Visions for the Future Boulder art show was truly impressive. Fulcrum Presss announcement during the art show of its plans to publish a Visions for the Future art book based on the NARF art show was among the most exciting moments during the evening. The book, which will be released nationwide in the Fall of 2007, will feature all the artwork exhibited at the show, and writings by the young artists on their perspectives on Native rights, Native art, and the future of Indian Country. The book will also feature a foreword by NARF. Please visit NARF's online store to purchase artwork, t-shirts from the Visions for Future Boulder Art Show.
