The winner of this package will receive two books from the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture.
The books are:
Turquoise, Water, Sky: Meaning and Beauty in Southwest Native Arts by Maxine E. McBrinn and Ross E. Altshuler.
This book provides an overview of the uses of turquoise in native arts of the Southwest, beginning with the earliest people who mined and processed the stone for use in jewelry, on decorative objects, and as a powerful element in ceremony. In the past, as now, turquoise was valued for its color and beauty but also for its symbolic nature: sky, water, health, protection, abundance. The book traces historical and contemporary jewelry made by Navajo, Zuni, Hopi, and Santo Domingo artisans, and the continuously inventive ways the stone has been worked.
Indian Country: The Art of David Bradley by Valerie K. Verzuh and Suzan Shown Harjo.
For the past three decades, artist David Bradley (Minnesota Chippewa) has been a recognized voice from Indian Country, exploring and confronting through his art questions of identity, self-determination, and self-portrait, and bringing to the surface issues about which he is passionate. His ironic, vivid, vibrant paintings are saturated with the artist's powerful and evocative depictions of the Indian experience and perspective. Bradley's paintings interweave historical and political truths, social and personal narrative, and cultural critique. Native people take center stage in world art, challenging imbedded assumptions, reconsidering history and deconstructing its icons. A post-modern trickster, Bradley redirects the gaze of American life from an Indian point of view--an outsider observing the world with paradox, incongruity, fantasy, and humor.
