Breaking stereotypes of Native American art, Defying Expectations: Contemporary Native American
Art from the San Diego Region examines the work of four contemporary Native American artists: James Luna, Gerald Clarke, Catherine Nelson-Rodriguez and Raymond Lafferty. Works in the exhibition respond to issues of Native American identity and authenticity, but also to problems affecting the entire region, such as the housing crisis and water shortages.
