Multimedia Piece: Art That’s Personal
Ages: 18 - No Limit
Join artist Gregg Deal to create original works using many of the processes that he uses to create work that means something to you personally. Working in multimedia, which includes paint and paper, Deal walks you through the accessibility of art, and in creating work that can be hard hitting and personally significant. Participants are encouraged to bring personal images. Images should be printed on paper, or photo paper.
Gregg Deal is a husband, father, artist and a member of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe. As a provocative contemporary artist-activist much of Deal's work deals with Indigenous identity and pop culture, touching on issues of race relations, historical consideration and stereotype. With this work—including paintings, mural work, performance art, filmmaking and spoken word—Deal critically examines issues within Indian country such as decolonization, the Native mascot issue and appropriation.
