Artist guides ECU students in campus sculptures

Ada —  

Noted Native American conceptual artist Edgar Heap of Birds just completed a two-week residency entitled ‘Hidden Histories’ at East Central University.

Throughout the residency, Heap of Birds worked with students enrolled in the art department sculpture 2 class and students with the Native American Students Association (NASA). Work with the two groups took two different tracks.

The Sculpture II students worked with Heap of Birds to construct one of his signature pieces on the campus. The work consisted of four ‘street signs’ located along Stadium Drive, just south of Tiger Commons Residential Housing on the ECU campus. The signs have the word Oklahoma in reverse, as if one is looking in a rear-view mirror and the statement “your host is” followed by the names of four local Indian nations – Chickasaw, Choctaw, Seminole and Creek.
