Artist Talk and Seed Ball Workshop with Cannupa Hanska Luger
November 17, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join us at the Museum of Natural and Cultural History to hear from artist Cannupa Hanska Luger for an exploration of his multidisciplinary artwork and the processes behind it. From 1:00 to 5:00 p.m., Luger will lead a drop-in workshop where participants can make native seed bombs for ecological restoration projects around Oregon. These seed bombs will be used to help seed several of our restoration sites including Thurston Hills Natural Area and Elijah Bristow State Park.
Featured Artist: Cannupa Hanska Luger
The Museum of Natural and Cultural History welcomes artist Cannupa Hanska Luger for a series of events exploring Indigeneity in the twenty-first century. Raised on the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota, Luger is a New Mexico-based, multi-disciplinary artist of Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara, Lakota, Austrian, and Norwegian descent. Interweaving performance, visual arts, and political action, Luger’s work invites us all to engage with Indigenous Peoples and values apart from the colonial lens.
Luger’s ar-ti-fact exhibit will be on view in the museum’s Oregon—Where Past Is Present hall through August 2019.
Luger’s visit is co-sponsored by the University of Oregon’s Art and Design Academic Residential Community (ARC), Center for Environmental Futures, Environmental and Natural Resources Law Center, Native American and Indigenous Studies ARC, and Native American Law Student Association.
