The prints in this collection span the 50-plus years of Kevin Red Star’s career. The painting reproduced on the cover of the box, Crow Parfleche, dates to Kevin’s early days at IAIA.
A parfleche contained the valued possessions of nomadic Plains Indians. These folded rawhide storage bags were beautifully decorated and painted to indicate owner and tribal affiliation. They were prized objects in ceremonial and daily life.
“Kevin Red Star is an illustrious alumnus of IAIA who has made significant contributions to Native American art, promoted understanding of American Indian culture and has a distinguished record of service and generous support to IAIA and his own Crow tribal community. Kevin has achieved noteworthy national and international acclaim and this Red Star Parfleche Collection captures the essence of his award winning career as one of the most original and groundbreaking contemporary artists of his time”
— Dr. Robert Martin (President, Institute of American Indian Arts)
