  • School of American Research (map)

2018 Ronald and Susan Dubin Fellow

Navajo metalsmith Nanibaa Beck learned her craft from her father, Victor Beck, Sr. which allowed her to connect with her culture and sense of self. During her residency, she plans to work with five female metalsmiths from the surrounding area. Beck expects to learn directly from this diverse group of female Native artists and to conduct research to strengthen her knowledge of Diné history, Indigenous female perspective, and to refresh her knowledge of Native jewelry. Beck will be in residence from June 15—August 15, 2018.
