‘Traditions Transitioned’

One of the allures of Native American art is that everyone regardless of ethnicity can find something interesting in its imagery.  Native American art can depict the past, a simpler way of life, but when it goes contemporary the viewer can see social issues evolve to meet the needs of a current society.
