In celebration of Women's History Month the MSV spotlights Native American artist Wendy Star whose works are featured in the exhibition Hear My Voice: Native American Art of the Past and Present. Guest blogger and Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Curator of Native American Art Johanna Minich, PhD, shares with us some insight into the artist's work:
There’s art you see, art that you taste, art that you feel, and there’s art that you hear. Whether it’s a magnificent painting, a gourmet meal, a smooth marble sculpture, or an enchanting melody, art is a language of the senses. It shows us what is beautiful and it teaches us how to find those qualities in the world around us.
