Artist in Residence:
Seidel Standing Elk
Plains Indian Museum
9 a.m.–3 p.m.
Traditional and contemporary artist Seidel Standing Elk joins us as artist-in-residence from Thursday, August 10 – Sunday, August 13. From 9 a.m.–3 p.m. each day, Standing Elk demonstrates his work and technique while chatting with visitors in the Center’s Plains Indian Museum.
About his art, Standing Elk explains that this is a rewarding time in his life, and he feels honored to share these evolving times with his audiences. He adds, “The traditional style keeps me in touch with the Cheyenne and So-taaeo-o culture, while the contemporary gives me the freedom to be creative.” To learn more about his work, visit Standing Elk website.
The Center of the West’s summer educational programs are supported in part by an award from the Wyoming Arts Council through funding from the National Endowment for the Arts; and by a generous grant from the R. Harold Burton Foundation.
