In 1936, Clyfford Still co-founded an artists’ colony in Nespelem, the Indian Agency on the Colville Reservation in Washington state. During his time there, Still sketched and photographed the Native Americans whose livelihoods had been negatively impacted by the construction of the Grand Coulee Dam by the United States government. Join this virtual program, presented in partnership with Denver Month of Photography, featuring CSM archivist Rachel Hancock and Washington State University professor Michael Holloman (member, Colville Confederated Tribes). Their conversation will shed light on the creation and context of these photographs.
