Pawhuska, Okla. (2/28/2018) – The Osage Office of the Chiefs, Osage Nation Museum (ONM), Osage Nation Prevention Program, Wahzhazhe Cultural Center and Osage Nation Child Care Department have organized a field trip for youth to attend the “Fluent Generations: The Art of Anita, Tom, and Yatika Fields” Exhibit at the Sam Noble Museum in Norman, Okla. on April 7.

“Fluent Generations” features a number of never-before-seen pieces of artwork from the Fields family that celebrates the vitality of indigenous culture. Both Anita and Yatika are both members of the Osage Nation. Youth participants will get the opportunity to not only develop an appreciation for the work of the Fields family, but a deeper appreciation for the impact of family — a building block of all cultures and communities around the world.

Participants will be taken on a chartered bus for this full-day event. Once students arrive at the Sam Noble Museum, they will experience a live painting event. Osage artist Yatika Fields will paint an 18′ x 10′ mural. After viewing the “Fluent Generations” exhibition, students will explore the rest of the Sam Noble Museum and participate in a hands-on clay activity with Osage sculptor Anita Fields.

Ages 10-18 are welcome to attend.
This event is free.
Pick up and drop off sites in Pawhuska, Hominy, and Fairfax.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
Space is limited, only 40 seats are available.
