Native American Medicine Wheel: Color Symbolism with Ocean Escalanti

How do we relate to the brilliance of color around us? What association of color is rooted within our ancestral cultures? How do these ideas connect with the modern world of design and technology? Join Indigenous artist Ocean Escalanti for an interactive presentation of color as slow and deliberate creation, in relation to these questions and knowledge from the world of plant foraging and natural dyeing. Enjoy a takeaway risograph zine printed in the BAMPFA Art Lab with historical Indigenous information based on the Native American medicine wheel, color association, plant symbolism, and pop culture context.
