Event description

Description

Join us on Third Thursday for a presentation by artist, Sarah Biscarra Dilley. She will discuss several of her art projects, the collective Black Salt Collective, and take questions from the audience. 

SARAH BISCARRA DILLEY (chumash + chicana) is a multi-disciplinary artist, bruja, ‘axi. Her work explores the spaces between the worlds; between blood sickness and bloodlines, between grief and joy, between body and land, between the spatial and the temporal. She is anchored in the intention and practices of indigenous resurgence: through cartographic upheaval, through contradiction, through complexity, through communion.
Using found footage, cut paper, archival material, handwork, language and thread, she traces a landscape of indigenous resilience and shifting relationships of belonging, displacement, and home. Her work and words have been exhibited nationally and internationally, individually and with Black Salt Collective 

She is full of birds.  

At 5:00PM and 7:00PM take a docent tour through our exhibitions, Native Portraits: Contemporary Tintypes by Ed Drew and Sensationalist Portrayls of the Modoc War, 1872-1873. Docent tours last 30-40 minutes.
