Recap of an Epic Week: Chip Thomas Visits Milwaukee

CT 6CT 7

A recent essay that I wrote for the Justseeds blog about Chip Thomas who curates the Painted Desert Project and works as a doctor and a street artist on the Navajo Reservation. Thomas is known for his large-scale photographs that he wheat pastes on empty billboards, roadside stands, and other structures throughout the Navajo Nation. In my essay I frame his work as extending beyond street artist: Thomas is a community artist who engages in a collaborative form of visual story telling – one in which celebrates the Navajo people and their culture and history. Here is a link to the essay.
