“Collective Impressions” features an influential group of Indigenous artists, from some of the earliest to engage with the medium, like Awa Tsireh and Gerald Nailor, to a group of more humorous and satirical artists, like Fritz Scholder, T.C. Cannon and Jaune Quick-to-See Smith. The exhibition also highlights a large number of Cherokee, Muscogee (Creek) and Yuchi artists, including Bobby C. Martin, America Meredith, Kay WalkingStick and Richard Ray Whitman, whose works address history, memory and belonging. These are crucial questions for the Georgia Museum of Art, given that our university and museum stand on the ancestral homelands of these tribes. Learn more about the museum exhibit here.

The Creative Writing program in the Department of English, in collaboration with the Georgia Museum of Art, are proud to participate in the “Collective Impressions: Modern Native American Printmakers” exhibit. The exhibit opens October 16, 2021 at the Georgia Museum of Art, 90 Carlton Street, Athens GA.

Six UGA graduate students,Chelsea Cobb, Nathan Dixon, Nathan Gehoski, Aviva Kasowski, Mike McClelland, and Hannah Warren, recorded poems from the landmark Norton anthology, When The Light of the World Was Subdued Our Songs Came Through, 2021, edited by United States Poet Laureate Joy Harjo, University of Georgia Eidson Chair of American Literature LeAnne Howe, and writer and scholar Jennifer Foerster. Learn more about these student participants here.
