Travois First Fridays: “Kanza Shokhi (Homecoming): The Art of Chris Pappan” by Chris Pappan
Please note, this event has expired.
With a focus on North American Indigenous artists, the Travois First Fridays series continues on Sept. 6, with Chris Pappan, an enrolled member of the Kaw Nation, and his exhibition “Kanza Shokhi (Homecoming): The Art of Chris Pappan.”
“I am a Kanza artist; the state of Kansas derives its name from our people. Shokhi is a Kanza word that means ‘return to one’s home’ or ‘homecoming,’” Pappan said. “I am returning to the homelands of my people through my artwork and always strive to honor my ancestors. Within the genre of ledger art, I attempt to convey recognition of our culture while infusing pop art and lowbrow influences, so people may understand us in a modern context.”
