Raven Halfmoon: Between Seen & Unseen
Date(s) - February 25, 2020
Sculptor Raven Halfmoon (Caddo Nation) investigates themes of cultural identity, appropriation, and history within her artwork. Each piece is a reflection, understanding, and interpretation of Caddo culture and the fight to maintain a place for it in today’s world. Through her sculptures, she tells a story both of how one understands self and culture, but also what defines these ideals in America today. Her artwork exists to break the mold of the Native American stereotype and to simply say, “we are still here, we are resilient, we are powerful.” For Halfmoon, it is necessary to continue a tradition of making, telling, and sharing history. The artist will provide an overview of her career as well as discuss specific, recent projects.
