Spend an evening at an opening reception for November’s featured artist Danielle SeeWalker on Thursday, November 10, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Koelbel Library. SeeWalker will share about her visual artwork and her first recently-published book, Still Here: A Past to Present Insight of Native American People & Culture. Guests will enjoy light refreshments and view her art in the library gallery.
SeeWalker is Húŋkpapȟa Lakȟóta and a citizen of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in North Dakota. She is an artist, writer, activist and mother based in Denver.
Her visual artwork often incorporates the use of mixed media and experimentation with traditional Native American materials, scenes and messaging. Her artwork pays homage to her identity as a Lakȟóta wíŋyaŋ (woman).
She is passionate about redirecting the narrative toward an accurate and insightful representation of contemporary Native America while still acknowledging historical events. SeeWalker serves as co-chair for the Denver American Indian Commission.
A collection of Danielle’s artwork will be on display at Koelbel Library for the month of November, Native American Heritage Month.
The Arapahoe Libraries Featured Artists program showcases the work of local artists who use their art to shed light on diverse communities, discuss history and social justice and spark important community conversations.
