DESCRIPTION

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
 
 mainstream boundary, reasserting and affirming
 
  Princeton University and The Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History.
