Renowned artist for Apache skateboards

August 9, 2012

Beginning Monday, August 20 the Duhesa Lounge on the second floor of the Lory Student Center will display the strongly stylized images of artist Douglas Miles. His hand-painted depictions of contemporary and historic Apaches challenge old perspectives in their portrayal of Native American youth, Apache culture, and reservation lifestyles.

Collection challenges perspectives

The Awakening is an art exhibition in the Duhesa Lounge featuring the works of Douglas Miles, internationally renowned artist and front man of Apache Skateboards.

This show is unlike anything that has ever been done in the Duhesa Lounge.

Images blend fine/pop art

The work is very contemporary and graphic. It is rooted in the use of iconic Native American and pop culture imagery, executed with a street art aesthetic.

The Awakening is a great show that should capture people's interest, so if you have some time go to the second floor of the LSC and check out the amazing art in the Duhesa Lounge.
