How does the solitary artist in the studio connect to the masses at the polls or the people in the streets? Internationally renowned painter, performance artist, and designer, Gregg Deal talks about the ways art and democracy does (and does not) fit together. CBCA Members will receive free registration for this digital talk with Gregg Deal on Wednesday, May 12 at 7:00 pm.
In addition, CBCA Members and their employees will get an exclusive code to get 20% off general admission to the History Colorado Center to see Gregg Deal (Pyramid Lake Paiute): “Merciless Indian Savages” exhibition in person. What does American Democracy mean to a person whose ancestors were insulted in its founding document? Gregg Deal (Pyramid Lake Paiute) chose Thomas Jefferson’s words as the title of his exhibition in order to help answer that question. With “Merciless Indian Savages,” Deal leads an Indigenous exploration of what American Democracy means in Indian Country. Deal’s work reveals a political process that marginalizes Native peoples in the service of American myth-making. Artists find unique, dynamic ways to confront this painful past and to fight for a more inclusive future. This exhibit is on display through July 31, 2021.
