Amerind Free Online Lecture
Adáádáá’ Nizhónîgo Nahóółtá (Yesterday We Had a Beautiful Rain) with Artist Glory Tacheenie-Campoy (Diné)
Saturday, April 17, 11:00 am – Arizona Time
Glory Tacheenie-Campoy was born on the Diné reservation to the maternal clan of Kinyáá á nii (Tall Tower Clan) and paternal clan, Bįįtoodnii (Deer Spring Water Clan). She grew up in a traditional Diné family and community near the Grand Canyon. It was within this setting she was taught to create utilitarian objects by hand during her childhood. She would then go on to learn how to paint and create art using commercial art materials while in school. With this blended arts education, Glory now produces prints, paintings, collages, and 3-D original mixed media art using a variety of materials including found objects, natural materials, and metal. During her Amerind presentation, Glory will discuss her contributions to the group exhibition, “Parched: The Art of Water in the Southwest,” currently on display at the Amerind Museum. Glory will also talk about new pieces she began to develop in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic.
