Kay WalkingStick ’59M, ’11H presented her retrospective “Kay WalkingStick: An American Artist” at Montclair Art Museum’s annual Gaelen Family Artist Lecture on April 28. Joined by Montclair curator Kathleen Ash-Milby, WalkingStick discussed the curatorial process and the significance of each piece in her exhibition.

Each year, the Gaelen Family Artist Lecture highlights the motivations and creative processes behind contemporary Native American artwork. Montclair Art Museum was the final stop of the national tour of “Kay WalkingStick: An American Artist,” which features more than 60 paintings, drawings, sculptures, notebooks, and diptychs inspired by the Cherokee Nation and Native American history.

WalkingStick also discussed her artwork as part of WHYY and NJTV’s “State of the Art, NJ” series.
