For decades, artist and activist Jean LaMarr has been creating paintings, prints, and sculptures that reject the myth of the “vanished American Indian.” Her artwork has inspired important dialogue about cultural stereotypes, representations of Native women, legacies of colonization, and environmental justice. Join us in welcoming Jean LaMarr to BAM as she discusses her artworks, influences, and inspirations.
