Artist Melanie Yazzie joins Nick on this triumphant return-to-broadcast Print Cast episode. They discuss her art, and the significant role that her heritage plays in her art practice and her life. Yazzie is a professor at University of Colorado, Boulder and her work is a mixture of print with other media, but overall she likes doing unique works. Her monotypes tell stories in such poetic ways and it was great to hear in her own words why she makes the work she does. She's widely known in the print world, hosts print exchanges and other programs, and she travels and takes her work and her teaching to indigenous peoples all around the globe. She's a grounded, inspiring artist, and we hope you enjoy this conversation.
