Artist Reception | Nov 13, 2008 | 5-9 pm
Douglas Miles - San Carlos Apache/Akimel O'odham graphic artist
Douglas Miles, connects the universality of mainstream's skateboard culture to today's Indian youth. His Graphic imagery of Apache warriors and contemporary "Rez" portraits brings a Native aesthetic and sensibility to the skateboard culture. The Apache skateboards break through a seemingly closed mainstream boundary, reasserting and affirming Indian youth's presence in the mainstream culture of today.
Douglas has recently shown his work at Princeton University
and The Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History.
