"Design Yourself: IAMNMAI"
Saturday, December 8, 2012 7:00 to 10:00 pm Potomac Atrium National Museum of the American Indian 4th St. and Independence Ave., S.W. Washington, D.C. "Design Yourself: IAMNMAI" is an artistic partnership designed to explore issues of identity, community, and mixed heritage through art while reminding us that everyone, in their own way, is part of the National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI). The program features Louie Gong (Nooksack/Chinese/Scottish/French), a Seattle-based educator and artist, and his newly-released customizable art toy dubbed "Mockups." Guest artists including Lee Newman, Chris Pappan, Lisa Schumaier, and Debra Yepa-Pappan and visitors join him for an interactive evening of creativity, music, and celebration. "Mockups" are available for purchase and art supplies are provided for those who wish to customize their "Mockups" at the museum. Groove to local DJ Will Eastman and purchase cuisine from the museum's Rammy award-winning Mitsitam Native Foods Cafe during the program. A unique display of artwork, including Gong's custom shoes and "Mockups" created by guest artists, is on view in the Potomac Atrium Dec. 4 - 13.

We are so honored to receive over 200 submissions from artists across the U.S. and Canada. We've had an incredibly difficult time narrowing down the submissions, and we're starting out with our honorable mentions. We'll be announcing semi-finalists in the next couple days!
