Conrad House1956-2001

$15,000 toward a traveling retrospective exhibition on the artist with an accompanying catalogue, organized by museum curator Robert Ware and guest curator Joyce Szabo, in consultation with John Bridges, director of the Conrad House Estate. Born in Rehoboth, NM, House was raised on the Diné (Navajo) Nation in both Arizona and New Mexico. Both his paintings and sculptural work seamlessly blend influences from Navajo-Oneida tribal traditions with European and American modernism through their bold expression of color, pattern, and form.
