The Autry Museum of the American West’s President and CEO Richard West, Jr. says the museum aims to “confront and address outdated understandings of Native art.” Two exhibitions on now at the museum – Indian Country: The Art of David Bradley and Coyote Leaves the Res: The Art of Harry Fonseca – do just that. KUSC’s Kelsey McConnell talked to the Autry’s Vice President of Research and Interpretation, Amy Scott, about the layers of meaning in Bradley and Fonseca’s bright and alluring works.
From the Central Coast to San Diego, from Santa Monica to Palm Springs, there are fascinating people creating incredible art and performances. KUSC will be covering those experiences on Arts Alive. And when you’re in the mood for a little more, like a longer version of an interview, more Arts Alive coverage is available online at kusc.org/artsalive.
