Comic Art Indigène: American Indian Comic Art

Comic Art Indigène opened at the National Museum of the American Indian this weekend. It’s an exhibit exploring “how storytelling has been used through comics and comic inspired art to express the contemporary Native American experience. … [It] examines how American Indian artists articulate identity, reclaim stereotypes, worldview, politics, and culture through the kinetic expression of sequential art.”

This could either be a really cool examination of art old and new, with new connections shown through juxtaposition, or just an attempt to jump on a popular bandwagon. If anyone goes, I’d love to know what you thought. Admission is free, and the show runs through the end of May.

Update: Here’s a review of the show, including a link to this way-cool beaded Wonder Woman bracelet.
