Our mission is to be a creative conduit for educational, social, and economic opportunities for Native Americans through artistic development.
Located on the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR) in beautiful Eastern Oregon, Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts’s vision is a world illumined and elevated through the genius of Indigenous creativity. Our programs include a world-class print studio which partners with Native and non-Native artists from around the nation, as well as a print gallery, traditional Indigenous arts workshops, and youth arts education programs.
Crow's Shadow prints have generated hundreds of thousands of dollars of income for majority Indigenous and BIPOC artists, have been featured in national exhibitions such as the Whitney Biennial, and have been collected by prominent private collectors and public institutions including the Whitney Museum, Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian and National Museum of American Art, Museum of Modern Art in NYC, Library of Congress, Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and more.
A 2019 feature in the New York Times hailed Crow's Shadow as a "hub for contemporary Native American artists nationwide...[attracting] some of the biggest Indigenous names in contemporary art." Now celebrating its 30th anniversary, Crow's Shadow is poised for growth.
