Memorial service set for artist Dan V. Lomahaftewa

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 28, for Dan V. Lomahaftewa, the Hopi/Choctaw painter who died unexpectedly on April 14.

Growing up on the Hopi Reservation in Arizona gave Lomahaftewa inspiration for his work. "From when I was very young I was surrounded by expressions of beauty accenting the homes of all my extended family," he said in recent interview. 'I was lucky to experience and be exposed to these artistic expressions which I feel has helped develop deeper appreciation for the intrinsic beauty and the aesthetics of my people."

Friends and colleagues will pay tribute to Lomahaftewa's legacy at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he lived. The service will be held at IAIA's Library & Technology Center from 5pm to 7pm.
