11 AM to 1 PM: Artist storytelling

1 PM: Artist demos

Meet exhibiting artists and hear stories behind the artworks in For the Good of All Things. Following the storytelling, several artists will demonstrate their craft.

This exhibition celebrates the wealth of artists from a variety of Tribal backgrounds and mixed Tribal affiliations who are living in communities across Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribal (CSKT) lands. Elder participating artists Corwin Clairmont and Linda King (both CSKT), along with Marie Torosian, program director at the Three Chiefs Culture Center, helped MAM reach artists who have not previously exhibited at the museum.

The exhibition is installed in the Lynda Frost Gallery, which has been dedicated for the last 17 years to promoting and featuring contemporary Native artists, artwork, and voices.
