Star Body, Star Breath

Sarah Rowe, Elizabeth Rubendall Artist in Residence

Lower-level gallery
March 4–August 6, 2022

Star Body, Star Breath features new and recent work by Sarah Rowe, the museum’s 2022 Elizabeth Rubendall Artist in Residence. Rowe is an Omaha-based multimedia artist of Lakota and Ponca descent whose work opens cross-cultural dialogues by utilizing methods of painting, casting, fiber arts, performance, and Native American ceremony in unconventional ways. Her work is participatory, a call to action, and re-imagines traditional Native American symbology to fit the narrative of today’s global landscape.

Visit the artist during her residency at the museum from April 5–16.
