Gallery 2 Exhibit: February 7 – March 1, 2019

Nanibah “Nani” Chacon is a Dine (Navajo) and Chicana artist who is known for her female figurative works which utilize bold colors and an illustrative format to incorporate contemporary Native, Chicana and American culture. She uses female characters to explore ideas of feminism, sexuality, softness, power, culture, traditionalism and modernism.

Nani will be creating a mural installation in WSU Fine Arts Gallery 2 with the help of graduate and undergraduate students. Stay tuned for Nani’s interview on the Fly On The Wall podcast with department chair, Squeak Meisel, and watch our Instagram space @wsufinearts for more images of the exhibition.
