To support the three-year pilot initiative “Native Voices,” which aims to illuminate the art-making practices and materials of six contemporary Native American artists alongside their personal and social histories and to advance best practices for the long-term preservation of their work, addressing the significant voids in professional knowledge about the unique conservation needs of contemporary Native American art. The initiative includes four major program threads: artist interviews (VoCA Talks), artist interview workshops, artist interview archiving and dissemination, and an issue of the VoCA Journal.
