Art & Life
I read an article today for Canadian Art History, entitled, "How To Get Indians Into An Art Gallery, " by Candice Hopkins. There was a statement she made that really struck me in relation to how art has always being a community based activity in Native culture.
"Art was never seen as something separate or distinct from life itself."
This statement may not be profound to some, but it is to me. I have believed this for a long time but I want to remind myself often because I think from time to time, I have a tendency to forget.
