Changes have been happening fast in the past decade for young as well as elder Native artists. There have been more opportunities to exhibit, more available grants and fellowships, which offer greater encouragement as well as the ability to travel internationally. Native art is changing by leaps and bounds. Smith will share a survey of her own activist work and painting as well as images of the some of the latest Native American art, much of which deals with technology, video, installation, and ephemeral art.
