Featuring comments from the artists: Crystal Worl & Jennifer Younger
The title of this exhibit, Aasgutú ádi, translates to “forest creatures” in the Tlingit language. The exhibit encompasses the natural beings represented in the various artworks of this exhibition, but also refers to the Tlingit people. Utilizing their experience in various art materials, Crystal Worl, Jennifer Younger, and Alison Marks encourage the viewer to look at traditional art forms through different lenses. The culmination of their artwork demonstrates the subsistence of Tlingit culture into the work of contemporary artists. This exhibition embodies the vibrancy of Tlingit culture and the continuation of traditional design and technique into stimulating contemporary art forms. Gallery walkthrough at 5:15 p.m. (Co-Sponsored with Campus Activities and the Lory Student Center Arts Program).
