Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts

This listing is provided by Visit Eastern Oregon

Renowned artist James Lavadour (Walla Walla) and friends incorporated Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts in 1992, with the idea of using art as a transformative tool within the Native American community. Just as art had changed and given new meaning to his own life, Lavadour wanted to create a place that would help others of American Indian heritage similarly realize the potential of art.

Over the years, CSIA has offered various youth services and educational workshops covering a wide spectrum of art forms, also serving as a location for special projects and collaborations with major artists.

In 2001, CSIA turned its main attention to fine-art printmaking, whereby artists could come expand their professional portfolios to create and market monotypes, monoprints and print edition.

The art gallery is open to visitors Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. See their online calendar for special events and workshops.
