Native American Art http://publicradiotulsa.org en Philbrook Presents "Identity & Inspiration: Creativity in 20th & 21st Century Native American Art" http://publicradiotulsa.org/post/philbrook-presents-identity-inspiration-creativity-20th-21st-century-native-american-art <p>Once upon a time, museums throughout this country would invariably display or organize their "art" and their "Native American art" in two distinct categories; a piece would "belong" to one or the other camp, but never both. That's increasingly not the case anymore, thankfully --- and our guest today talks about why. We're pleased to welcome Rick West back to ST; he'll be the keynote speaker for a day-long Native Art Symposium tomorrow (Saturday the 5th) at the Philbrook Museum of Art here in Tulsa.

He was also a dedicated and highly influential teacher of art, most notably at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, NM.

This contemporary ballet brings together certain special qualities of Osage history and culture: a reverence for classical ballet (which was, of course, the legacy of two famous Osage ballerinas, Maria and Marjorie Tallchief) and a deep respect also for the richness of Osage traditional music, dance, and textile arts.
