Since its founding in 1946, Idyllwild Arts has always been firmly rooted in respect for and reverence of Native American arts and culture. Each summer, Idyllwild Arts’ Native American Arts Center produces and hosts the annual Native American Arts Festival Week, designed to enhance and add depth to the Summer Program workshop experience. The week-long festival provides a provocative learning experience by bringing together distinguished artists, scholars, and cultural specialists to present performances, demonstrations, films, exhibitions, showcases, and the popular Michael Kabotie Lecture Series.

We are thrilled to announce this year’s invitational exhibition, Blue Corn and Other Stories, will feature renowned artist Joe Baker (Delaware), who is also Executive Director/Co-Founder of the Lenape Center in Manhattan. This show is curated by Idyllwild Arts Native American Arts Center Executive Director, Shaliyah Ben (Diné). Join us as we kick of the Native American Arts Festival Week with this very special event! The artist/curator talk will be held at 6:00pm, followed by a gallery reception at 7:00pm.
