Gibson and Leaken showcase the talents of Red Star in this collection of artwork while also exploring his motivations. Red Star’s childhood on the reservation, his time at the Institute of American Indian Arts and San Francisco Art Institute, and his friends and family are all a part of his ever-evolving path of expression that makes his artwork so iconoclastic. The book won the Multi-Cultural: Non-Fiction category of the 2015 USA Best Book Awards.
Kevin Red Star is not only one of the most acclaimed Native American artists, but he is also a visual historian of his people, the Crow. His art celebrates, commemorates, and perpetuates the Crow culture.
