Artist Bios
Hock E Aye Vi Edgar Heap of Birds
Hock E Aye Vi Edgar Heap of Birds is an artist and an advocate for Indigenous communities worldwide. His work includes multidisciplinary forms of public art messages, large-scale drawings, Neuf Series acrylic paintings, prints, works in glass, and monumental porcelain enamel on steel outdoor sculpture. The tribal elder serves as an instructor/painter in the traditional Cheyenne Earth Renewal Ceremony at Concho, Oklahoma and is one of the leaders of the Cheyenne Elk Scraper Warrior Society. Heap of Birds’ artistic creations were shown in the 2007 Venice Biennale. While representing Indigenous communities his art focuses first on social justice, and on the personal freedom to live within the tribal circle as an expressive individual.

Michael Waugh
Michael Waugh is known for making labor-intensive, calligraphic works composed out of historically fraught texts. His drawings, which at first appear to offer straightforward, bucolic scenes, reveal political and metaphorical complexity. He has received numerous awards, including from the New York Foundation for the Arts and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. His work is included in the collections of the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the 21C Collection, and The Amon Carter Museum of American Art.
