In 1937, Clyfford Still co-founded an artist colony in Nespelem, Washington, home of the Colville Confederated Tribes. Still developed a relationship with the people there, which we see reflected in the depictions of the community and individuals that he created during this time. Join the Museum’s Associate Curator, Bailey Placzek and Associate Archivist, Erin Shafer as they take a deeper dive into the Nespelem archival holdings, and share about their recent trip to the Reservation. The program also features Michael Holloman, associate professor of fine arts and coordinator of Native Arts Outreach and Education at Washington State University (WSU) and Colville Confederated Tribes member, as well as John E. Sirois, Traditional Territories Advisor for the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation.
This is a recording of the live streamed program which took place in the Clyfford Still Museum lobby on Thursday, November 17, 2022.
