    • Tacoma, WA
Overview

Tacoma Art Museum’s Haub Curator of Western American Art, Faith Brower, has partnered with guest curator and Haub Fellow, India Young, from Victoria, B.C., to present this selection of approximately 50 prints.

For generations, Northwest Coast Native American and First Nations artists developed visual languages made up of colors, lines, shapes and space. These centuries-old designs can be recognized on cultural objects including basketry, carvings, blankets, and jewelry. When Northwest Coast artists began printmaking in the 1960s, they translated their graphic languages onto a flat surface. The reproducible print medium raised visibility for Indigenous arts in the Northwest and beyond.
