Though historically it has been difficult for contemporary Native American artists to find acceptance and inclusion within the often exclusionary world of the fine arts, Wisconsin artists are playing a prominent role in changing that. Emily Arthur, Tom Jones, John Hitchcock, Dakota Mace, and Sky Hopinka are five of many contemporary indigenous artists whose work is being created in or informed by their personal experience of life in Wisconsin. Their insights on the contemporary indigenous art scene demonstrate the changing artistic landscape locally and across the continent.
