Exhibition Tour: Jaune Quick-to-See Smith

Apr 21 2024

Seattle Art Museum

Fourth Floor Galleries

1:15 PM – 2:15 PM

Discover the artwork of Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, one of the most innovative and significant artists of her generation, in Memory Map at SAM. In this 60-minute guided tour, visitors will take an up-close look at the artist's paintings, prints, drawings, and sculptures on view and examine her engagement with the languages of abstraction, expressionism, and Pop Art to interrogate American life and identity from her Native perspective.

Tours will meet at the entry to the fourth floor special exhibition galleries and are free with museum admission.

This exhibition was organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

Generous support for Jaune Quick-to-See Smith: Memory Map is provided by the Henry Luce Foundation and the Terra Foundation for American Art.
