The Changer (dukwibel), 2011

Joe Feddersen
(American | Colville Confederated Tribes, born 1953)

Location: The Evergreen State College

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Joe Feddersen's work "The Changer (dukwibel)" honors his mentor and friend, artist Vi Hilbert (taqwseblu), with the story of how the Coast Salish people lifted the Western sky to make the transition between the upper and lower worlds more difficult to cross. Just as the sky was lifting, four hunters bounded into the upper world, becoming the constellations.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with The Evergreen State College.
