Temporary Exhibit Spotlight – A Native Traveling Inside the City

Antoinette Thompson, Navajo (Dine) is an abstract expression artist from Lukachukai, AZ. The Institute for American Indian Studies is very proud to showcase some of her most recent work in the museum from November 9th through the 24th.
"This collection was an inspiration of a Native Traveling inside the city of Chicago using the transit system. I wanted to keep the simplicity of color to a minimal so you can really see and feel the process of traveling.“Chicago” is a Native American word for onion just brings this servers together with “Were still here”. An urban contemporary indigenous lifestyle represented by the colors of emotions which I allow you to engage with." - Antoinette Thompson (ATA)
