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