Wearing Identity – Art and Adornment on the Northwest Coast

2017-08-20 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Kathryn Bunn-Marcuse, PhD

Mark your calendar as you do not want to miss Kathryn Bunn-Marcuse’s talk on Sunday, August 20th at 2 p.m. at the Grange in Friday Harbor.   This talk explores the many ways that identity is expressed through adornment on the Northwest Coast over the last 200 years.  From tattoos to tennis shoes, cedar back capes to designer hoodies, clothing and jewelry has always communicated deep history and contemporary affiliations.

Kathryn Bunn-Marcuse is the curator of NW Native art and director of the Bill Holm Center for the Study of NW Native Art-Burke Museum and assistant professor at UW.  She focuses how the artists are informed by the artistry of previous generations.
