The ASU School of Art welcomes Map(ing) 2011 artists, including Ahkima Honyumptewa, Dallin Maybee, Eliza Narajano Morse, Hulleah Tsinhnahjinnie, Marilou Schultz, Randy Kemp, and Wanesia Misquadace.

Map(ing) 2011 is a biennial collective community-based project for the sharing of culture, language, and identity. The seven-day event focuses on the collaboration of seven Native American artists working with graduate printmaking students in the nationally recognized printmaking studios of the ASU School of Art in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts during January 2011. Map(ing)2011 also includes an exhibition, an artists’ public forum, as well as a fundraiser and silent auction.

The collaborators spend one week together working in ASU’s printmaking studios exploring and cultivating an environment of communication, diversity, mentoring and acknowledgment of place and people. The artists create a limited edition of original prints with the collaboration of ASU School of Art graduate printmaking students.

Map(ing) 2011 is made possible with a grant from the ASU Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, support from the ASU School of Art, and the Ted Decker Catalyst Fund. For more information about Map(ing) 2011 and a complete sponsors’ list, please visit:
