    2014 Educator Showcase: Chris Olszewski


    As an active member of the Chippewa of Mnjikaning First Nation, I have developed my aesthetic from the creative visual language of the Northern Woodland people.  My work is rooted in western painting traditions, as well as being trained in the modernist/postmodernist philosophy of art.  I also have a fascination with the ancient Native American world and how it interacts with current times.  My goal is to develop the Native American image beyond the “Souvenir Shop” and to depict actual people struggling with the encroachment of the dominant contemporary culture.  Chris works as a professor in the School of Foundations Studies, SCAD.
