Visiting Artist Talk: Jo Harjo

March 6 at 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Visiting Artist, Joe Harjo will give an Artist Talk at Vermont Studio Center in the Red Mill Building on Wednesday, March 6 at 8:00 pm ET, 2024. This event is free and open to the public.

Joe Harjo (b.1973 Oklahoma City, OK) is a multidisciplinary artist from the Muscogee (Creek) Nation of Oklahoma and is currently working and teaching in San Antonio, TX. He holds a BFA in Visual Arts from the University of Central Oklahoma and an MFA from the University of Texas at San Antonio. His work uncovers the lack of visibility of Native culture, lived experience and identity in America, due to both the absence of proper representation in mainstream culture and the undermining of Native belief systems. He confronts the misrepresentation and appropriation of Native culture and identity, initiating a call for change.
