get dirty: Printmaking with Melanie Yazzie

Thursday November 10, 2016 – 6:30-8:00pm

Melanie Yazzie leads a beginner’s printmaking instruction hour surrounded by Home: Contemporary Indigenous Artists Responding, BMoCA Present Box exhibition of contemporary Native American prints curated by the artist. No previous experience necessary, no tools required. Apron or old clothes recommended.


As a printmaker, painter, and sculptor, Melanie Yazzie’s work draws upon her rich Diné (Navajo) cultural heritage. Her work follows the Diné dictum “walk in beauty” literally, creating beauty and harmony. As an artist, she works to serve as an agent of change by encouraging others to learn about social, cultural, and political phenomena shaping the contemporary lives of Native peoples in the United States and beyond.

Melanie Yazzie (b. 1966, Navajo Nation) is Professor and Head of Printmaking at The University of Colorado at Boulder. She has also taught at the Institute of American Indian Arts, Boise State University, and the University of Arizona, and the Pont Aven School of Contemporary Art in France and been featured in multiple major publications.
