Fluent Generations: The Art of Anita, Tom & Yatika Fields
Sam Noble Museum, Norman, Oklahoma
A family of accomplished Native artists showcases their works of photography, ceramics and paintings that celebrate the vitality of Indigenous cultures. Anita Fields (Osage), along with husband Tom Fields (Muscogee) and son Yatika Starr Fields (Cherokee, Creek, Osage) come together for the first time ever to illustrate their creativity and passion under one roof, with works that bring their cultural heritage to life inside the Sam Noble Museum.
“Fluent Generations” features a number of never-before-seen pieces of artwork as well as loans from the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, Oklahoma State University Museum of Art, the Arkansas Heritage Museum, private collections and the artists’ own collections. Museum visitors will get the opportunity to not only develop a keen 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.
