Aboriginal Gathering Place Speaker Series
We are very pleased to present artist Edgar Heap of Birds!
Join us at the AGP on September 23, 4-6pm.
His artworks include multi-disciplinary forms of public art messages, large scale drawings, Neuf Series acrylic paintings, prints and monumental porcelain enamel on steel outdoor sculpture.
Heap of Birds received his Master of Fine Arts from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (1979), his Bachelor of Fine Arts from The University of Kansas, Lawrence, Kansas (1976) and has undertaken graduate studies at The Royal College of Art, London, England.
His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and he has served as a visiting lecturer and professor at several institutions. He currently teaches Native American Studies at the University of Oklahoma where he has been since 1988.
His artistic creations and efforts as an advocate for indigenous communities worldwide are focused first upon social justice and then the personal freedom to live within the tribal circle as an expressive individual.
