Northern Cheyenne multidisciplinary artist Bently Spang is the University of Wyoming American Indian Studies Program spring semester Eminent Artist in Residence.
Spang will teach a class on Native American art; will have a solo exhibition at the UW Art Museum; and on April 2 at 7 pm in the Union Ballroom, will present the Tekcno Pow Wow III, a performance art piece combining pow wow, techno and hip hop music, video projection, and multiple dance forms. Audience members will see break dancers challenge traditional American Indian dancers in a performance intended to lead to the exchange of artistic expression.
American Indian Studies at the University of Wyoming is a three-dimensional program offering academic courses to all interested students, support services to American Indian students, and outreach to the larger Wyoming community. This multi-disciplinary program develops respect for, and understanding of, Native views; enables American Indian students to obtain a university education; and extends UW resources to residents of the State and region.
