Join us on Instagram on July 28 for a behind-the-scenes IGTV Artist Studio Tour with Chris Pappan, an artist of Kaw, Osage, Lakota, and mixed European heritage. His cited influences are Heavy Metal magazine and the Lowbrow art movement, whose roots stem from 1970s underground comics, punk, and hot rod cultures. His art reflects the dominant culture’s distorted perceptions of Native peoples and is based on the Plains Native art tradition known as Ledger Art. Pappan is a graduate of the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and his work is in the collections of the National Museum of the American Indian (Washington, DC); The Field Museum of Natural History (Chicago, Illinois); The Newberry Library (Chicago, Illinois); The North American Native Museum (Geneva, Switzerland); Missoula Art Museum (Missoula, Montana); and The Spencer Museum of Art (Lawrence, Kansas); among others.
