This is the first in a landmark series of three titles that assembles, documents, interprets, and explores the rich diversity of craft, art, and design being produced today by contemporary Native American artists.
This first volume, which focuses on Native American arts in the Southwest, includes works in a variety of media by approximately ninety artists. This series offers an opportunity to appreciate the work of pioneers defying traditional Native American cultural stereotypes and of younger artists exploring new ground.
Magnificent images of each artist's work (many never before published) are accompanied by artists' statements, biographies, and commentaries. A bibliography of Native American arts today has also been included.
