Exhibit Opening: Rick Bartow | Things You Know But Cannot Explain

More than 120 paintings, drawings, sculptures, and prints by Rick Bartow will be on view at the Schingoethe Center starting January 23, 2018. Bartow, one of the nation’s most prominent contemporary Native American artists, (1946-2016) was a member of the Mad River Wiyot tribe of Northern California. Personal experiences, literature, and art from around the globe informed Bartow's art. Throughout his career, he consistently explored self-portraiture and animal imagery, often blurring the lines between the two; many describe his work as transformational and visual storytelling. Stay for Curator Danielle Knapp's lecture "The Work is a Blessing: Why We Shouldn't Explain Rick Bartow" @ 6:45pm in the Tapper Recital Hall. Event is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Registration is appreciated. To register, visit the link provided or call (630) 844-4924.
