2023 Helen Clark Berlind Symposium featuring artist Michael Namingha

The 31st Annual Helen Clark Berlind Symposium is a day-long program inspired by the 111th Annual Exhibition: Survivance: Contemporary Native Art featuring artist Michael Namingha.

The Berlind Symposium is always held in conjunction with the College’s Annual Exhibition of Contemporary Art. On the occasion of the 80th Annual, friends and family of Helen Clark Berlind, class of 1958, established a symposium to honor her memory. The event has expanded the educational impact of the Annual every year since, hosting scholars and artists to discuss issues relevant to each exhibition.
