The Osage Office of the Chiefs, Osage Nation Museum, Osage Nation Prevention Program, Wahzhazhe Cultural Center and Osage Nation Child Care Department have organized a fieldtrip for youth to attend the “Fluent Generations: The Art of Anita, Tom, and Yatika Fields” exhibition at the Sam Noble Museum in Norman on April 7.

“Fluent Generations” features a number of never-before-seen pieces of artwork from the Fields family that celebrates the vitality of indigenous culture. Both Anita and Yatika are members of the Osage Nation. Youth participants will get the opportunity to not only develop an appreciation for the work of the Fields family, but a deeper appreciation for the impact of family — a building block of all cultures and communities around the world.

Participants will be taken on a chartered bus for a full day event. Once arriving at the Sam Noble Museum the youth will experience a live painting event. Osage artist Yatika Fields will be painting an 18’ x 10’ mural in front of the children. After viewing the “Fluent Generations” exhibition we will explore the rest of the Sam Noble Museum and participate in a hands-on clay activity with Osage sculptor Anita Fields.

Ages 10-18 are welcome to attend.

This event is free.

Pick up and drop off sites in Pawhuska, Hominy, and Fairfax.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided.

Space is limited, only 40 seats are available.
