Iva has combined the processes of Hopi plaque weaving with sifter basket weaving in a project called “Building on Life’s Creation with Yucca.” She also created flat weavings of Hopi clan migration symbols based on stories she has learned in a project titled “Where the Sun Fits In.” Join the School for Advanced Research on May 22 to hear about her experience as the 2014 Eric and Barbara Dobkin Native Artist Fellow. The evening will conclude with a visit to the Dubin Studio to see Iva’s baskets and an opportunity to purchase her recently created work.
