Journeys in Creativity Art Program The Susana Santos' Journeys in Creativity Program: "An Exploration in Photography with Native Teens
NMAI's Resource Center National Mall March 3-15, 2008.
In the summer of 2007, 13 high school Native youth visited the Oregon College of Art and Craft to focus on an in-depth study of photography. During their tenure these students visited area museums, attended cultural events, and studied art from professional Native artists. This collaboration resulted in a collection of photographs produced by the students that will be sent to the NMAI to be displayed in the hallway of the Resource Center.
Students studied under instructor Erica Lord (Nenana Athabaskan) whose work is featured in Off the Map: Landscape and the Native Imagination, a 2007 publication of the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of the American Indian.
