Memory and Imagination


In this book, anthropologist Rebecca J. Dobkins, curator Carey T. Caldwell, and Professor of Art and Ethnic Studies, Frank LaPena, explore the life and works of self-taught painter, Frank Day. Frank Day's life, work, and teachings played a major role in the revitalization of Native American dance and visual art in California in the 1960s and 1970s, and his imaginative, highly stylized paintings not only illustrate personal stories but also stories of Maidu tribal lore and culture. A visual delight, this book is a must have for those interested in Native American art and history. Profusely illustrated with color reproductions of Frank Day's paintings. Long out of print, this book is somewhat hard to find, and we only have a limited number of these books available. Paperbound: 106 pages: 8.75 x 10.5"
