“It’s a Family Thing” is as art exhibit showcasing the art work of Russell, Austin and the late Orian L. Box. The exhibit was the inspiration of a museum staff member who had to do an exhibit for a class through Institute of the American Indian Arts (IAIA). This was a way to showcase some of the art work that the Southern Ute Cultural Center and Museum (SUCCM) has in storage and to convey a sense of family. This is also a way for SUCCM to honor a former Assistant Director, Orian L. Box.
“It’s a Family Thing” is also a way to show that the museum is about family and that we take pride in honoring our elders. It is a way to give back to the community through our exhibits and what better way than to showcase a family of artists.
The staff here at SUCCM welcomes all visitors to come and enjoy these beautiful pieces of art that we are displaying. SUCCM will be running this exhibit for two months; during this time SUCCM will then switch out the art work to feature other artists.
