“Traditionally, clans, rather than specific artists, were recognized for creating clan objects and regalia. Artists and even the names of artists were given secondary recognition,” said SHI President Rosita Worl. “Today we have artists who create art or at nané (Tlingit for an iconic event in which a crest was acquired) for others beyond the clan. This series of lectures features emerging master artists and scholars who will provide us insight into the evolving thought about Northwest Coast art.”
People may submit questions via YouTube comments and staff will read them to speakers during the events. After the live streams, all lectures will be posted on a YouTube playlist for later viewing.
