Prominent contemporary Native American artist Rick Bartow is celebrated for the Museum of Art/WSU’s featured winter exhibit. The late artist’s work is on display at more than 60 public institutions around the U.S.; this retrospective show in Pullman includes more than 120 paintings, drawings, sculptures and prints. Perhaps one of Bartow’s most-seen pieces is his 2012 Smithsonian commission We Were Always Here, a pair of 20-foot sculptures installed on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Learn more about Bartow’s process, themes and influences in a Feb. 22 (noon-1 pm) museum walk-through with art history and American Indian studies professor Michael Holloman.
