This exhibition is a collection of mixed media works with various levels of printmaking layered with painting and drawing. All the works featured in the exhibition have been created within the last two years. As an artist, Yazzie works to serve as an agent of change by encouraging others to learn about the social, cultural and political phenomena that shape the lives of contemporary Native peoples in the United States and beyond. Her work incorporates personal experiences as well as the events and symbols from Diné culture. This is Yazzie’s first major solo exhibition in the Denver area.
