Native Lights – Graci Horne’s Many Gifts as a Multi-Disciplinary Artist, Curator, and Storyteller
On today’s show, we talk with Graci Horne (Sisseton Wahpeton Dakota and Hunkpapa Lakota/Dakota) who is a multi-disciplinary artist specializing in painting, printmaking, puppet making, photography, film, and poetry. Graci Horne is also the story keeper at the Mnisota Native Artists Alliance, a Native-led initiative formed to develop, protect, and promote expressions of Native art.
Graci Horne holds a degree in Museum Studies from the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, NM. Graci shares why enjoys expressing herself through many artistic mediums, how she loves working with up-and-coming and seasoned artists, and how curating the artwork of other Native artists is one of her greatest joys.
