On Thursday, 3/18 from 5-5:45 pm (CSM) join this virtual program, presented in partnership with Denver Month of Photography, featuring a conversation between Milo Carpenter, CSM associate digital archivist and Michael Holloman, Washington State University associate professor and member of the Colville Confederated Tribes. Their conversation sheds light on the creation and context of photographs from the Colville Reservation. In 1936, artist Clyfford Still co-founded an artists’ colony in Nespelem on the Colville Reservation in Washington state, where he sketched and photographed the Native Americans whose livelihoods had been negatively impacted by the construction of the Grand Coulee Dam.
