Thursday, June 20 – An Evening with Cathy Smith: Artist, Costume Designer, and Historian
Guests and members are invited to enjoy An Evening with Cathy Smith: Artist, Costume Designer, and Historian. Cathy Smith designed the authentic costumes in films such as Dances with Wolves, Geronimo and Son of the Morning Star – for which she won the Emmy for Excellence in Costume Design. She has consulted on a majority of the Western genre films over the past 20 years. Growing up near two Sioux reservations, Smith was led to her pursuit of authentic, traditional Native American art forms, design, and techniques including the sacred art of porcupine quillwork. She has recently begun a new career as a painter. Cathy Smith presents the West and Native Americana in fascinating detail, captivating the audience with images and stories gathered from her years of western filmmaking, life on the reservation, and adventures in Indian country. Amusing and entertaining, her stories will educate and illuminate attendees.
