The de Young Global Fellows program, made possible with the generous support from The Christensen Fund, invites indigenous artists from around the world to activate the museum as a space where important cultural connections can be forged and historic collections can be enlivened through interactions with the public. Douglas Miles is the 2016-17 de Young Global Fellow, and will be working with the de Young and a number of partnering organizations from mid-January through mid-March 2017. Through Kua`aina Associates he will connect and engage with Bay Area based Native American artists and community at the beginning of the year, serve as the de Young Museum’s Artist-in-Residence in February 2017, and work with the 509 Cultural Center and Luggage Store Gallery in March 2017.
