Virtual Artist Conversation with Erica Lord and Maggie Thompson, moderated by Lara Evans

September 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT


Join “Sharing Honors and Burdens: Renwick Invitational 2023” artists Erica Lord (Athabaskan/ Iñupiat) and Maggie Thompson (Fond du Lac Ojibwe) in conversation with guest curator, Lara Evans (Cherokee Nation). Thompson, a fiber artist and designer who derives inspiration from her Ojibwe heritage, explores family history and broader themes relating to her Native American experience in her work. Lord is a multimedia artist who crafts beaded burden straps and sled-dog blankets with abstracted representations of the diseases that disproportionately impact Native and other marginalized communities. They will discuss the importance of cultural identity and how it informs their creative practice.

Media sponsorship for “Sharing Honors and Burdens: Renwick Invitational 2023” programming is provided by the American Craft Council.
