"She Said: Cyclical Directions for a Linear World": Native American Art Expression
The public is cordially invited to welcome a piece of art created by Dr. Elizabeth Warson to our community space in the JHS media center. With this art, on loan to the Jordan Public Schools from the private collection of a JPS staff member, we have been able to create a meaningful space to honor the heritage and contributions of our Native American families.
Dr. Warson is planning to join our reception via Google Chat in our Collaborative Learning Center located in the high school media center. All guests will have the opportunity to speak directly to Elizabeth and engage in conversation about her work as an artist and as an advocate for Native American presence in education and art.
Date: Wednesday, April 20, 2016
Time: 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Place: JHS Media Center
Artwork as described by the artist:
“She Said: Cyclical Directions for a Linear World”
Dr. Elizabeth Warson, Fort Collins Colorado
The foundation of this work emerged from the realm of dream imagery sharing a story of transformation, divine connection, urgency and profound interdependence between our human lives and our spirit relatives. Dr. Warson pulls these lessons through wood, leather, wax, dye and patinated bronze to merge two concepts together as one. The original work “She Said” #1, blends with a later work, “Cyclical Directions for a Linear World,” to become a quadrant work with a cast bronze center piece.
Students will have the opportunity to speak with Dr. Warson during a student presentation on Wednesday, May 4, 2016. They will also have an opportunity to speak to the artist and ask questions about her work.
Dr. Warson is the founder and director of American Indian Art Therapy and resides in Fort Collins, Colorado.
