As a printmaker, painter, and sculptor, Yazzie’s work draws upon her rich Diné (Navajo) cultural heritage. She works to serve as an agent of change by encouraging others to learn about social, cultural, and political phenomena shaping the contemporary lives of Native peoples in the United States and beyond.

The Peck School of the Arts Department of Art & Design proudly presents the 2023-24 Artists Now! Lecture Series featuring diverse creators working across traditional, hybrid and emergent disciplines. Nationally and internationally recognized practitioners explore and expand the boundaries of contemporary creative visual practice through May 2024.
