You are invited for an online conversation with contemporary artist Hock E Aye Vi Edgar Heap of Birds.

The artworks of Hock E Aye Vi Edgar Heap of Birds include multi-disciplinary forms of public art messages, large scale drawings, neuf series acrylic paintings, prints, works in glass and monumental porcelain enamel on steel outdoor sculpture. Heap of Birds’ 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.

Edgar Heap of Birds' art is featured in Strange Weather on view at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History from April 14-August 14, 2022. The exhibition is organized by the Institute of the Arts and Sciences and the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History.

This event is free and open to the public. Click here to register.

Strange Weather: From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation features contemporary art works which illuminate and reframe the boundaries of bodies and the environment. The artworks included in the exhibition span five decades, from 1970-2020, and are drawn together for how they creatively call attention to the impact and history of forced migrations, industrialization, global capitalism, and trauma on humans and the contemporary landscape.
