IARC Native Artist Fellow, Nanibaa Beck, Appears on Spencer Beckwith On the Arts

Aug 3, 2018

“[There is] an ongoing conversation about modern versus traditional jewelry, especially in the way that it connects with Native American arts in general… The way that I want to think about traditional is the way the I myself interpret it: continuous.” Nanibaa Beck

Navajo metalsmith, Nanibaa Beck is the IARC 2018 Ronald and Susan Dubin Native artist fellow. She was recently interviewed by Spencer Beckwith for his show, On the Arts. The two explore Beck’s Language Collection series and reflect on Beck’s time at SAR.
