Purchase, Acquisition Fund

Julie Buffalohead, born in 1972, is an enrolled member of the Ponca Tribe of Oklahoma who lives and works in St. Paul, MN. This piece was purchased from the Dec. 2014 – February, 2015 exhibition at the MMAA, “Julie Buffalohead: Coyote Dreams.” In the catalog for that show the artist explains, “The narrative tension my work creates emanates from the Native oral tradition of storytelling, while I blend in my own distinct strands of make-believe.”
