Fine Art Museum is Site of Two-Day Filming for Native American Documentary

Kevin Star indian OMFA 300DANCERS (THE RED STAR BROTHERS), oil on canvas, 1990, Kevin Red Star (b. 1943), Crow, Roberts, Montana (Courtesy OMFA)OWENSBORO, Ky. (2/13/14) – Internationally known artist, Kevin Red Star, will film a documentary today and Friday at the Owensboro Museum of Fine Art.

The documentary will focus of the history behind the exhibition ART OF THE NATIVE AMERICAN: KEVIN RED STAR AND HIS FRIENDS.

This exhibition at the OMFA celebrates the contributions of contemporary Native Americans to U.S. history and is the first of its kind in the nation.

As Native Americans began to search for new parameters and more cosmopolitan instruction for their gifted and talented youth, the Institute of American Indian Arts opened in 1962 in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Young artists, including Red Star and many others represented in this exhibition, went there to study and a new form of artistic expression emerged.

Over the past decade, these artists have given new direction to America's oldest art. This new generation of artists is now part of mainstream international art. The exhibition, representing 22 Native American tribes, was designed to showcase the substantial contribution of the artists.

"Through their unique perspective and vision, they have endowed us with a rich cultural legacy," said OMFA Director Mary Bryan Hood. "The art of the Native American has experienced a renaissance. We are pleased to have shared this tribute to their monumental artistic achievements with our region. This documentary will allow us to share it with the rest of the world."

The exhibition, sponsored by Owensboro Health Regional Hospital and a private patron of Native American art, was curated by Red Star and the OMFA staff. It opened in November and will be on display until Feb. 23 at the Owensboro Museum of Fine Art, 901 Frederica St.
