All in the Family: The Art of Dan and Arlo Namingha

Flagstaff, AZ – Host Intro:

For Hopi painter Dan Namingha, artistic genius runs in the family. His great, great grandmother is the famous potter Nampeyo, the first internationally recognized Native American artist. His mother is also a world-renowned potter. And his paintings are on display at more than 30 major museums around the world. Now, his eldest son Arlo is making a name for himself as a sculptor. On June 17th father and son opened an exhibit called Elemental Forms at the Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff. Daniel Kraker with KNAU's Indian Country News Bureau got a sneak preview, where Dan Namingha spoke about his family's artistic lineage.
