NDSU, Plains Art Museum, The Red Door Gallery and Museum, Rourke Art Gallery Museum, Fargo Theatre and other organizations are teaming up for “Fritz Fest,” a three-day celebration of artist Fritz Scholder.
NDSU’s Renaissance Hall is set to host an event symposium led by some of the country’s most prominent Scholder scholars – Jessica Horton, assistant professor of art history at the University of Delaware; John Lukavic, associate curator at the Denver Art Museum; and Truman Lowe, emeritus professor of art at the University of Wisconsin.
The symposium is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 6, from 1-4 p.m. It is free and open to the public. Coffee and refreshments will be available.
Scholder, who died in 2005, was a respected and controversial American artist recognized for his commentary of publicly-held stereotypes of Native Americans.
