Art + Coffee - An excellent combination
Every month we bring to our walls a featured artist’s work. By showcasing a diverse array of talent and style, these artists are our partners in creating a stimulating and colorful atmosphere. So come on down and take it all in whilst you sip upon a splendid beverage!
Current Artist: BO Apitz
"llow Abrahamson (Shoshone), JR Lonelodge and Dijay Yarholar (Cheyenne Arapaho) are all professional powwow dancers. Willow is a jingle dress dancer, JR is a fancy dancer, and Dijay is a grass dancer. The purpose of this shoot was to do something creative and with that I wanted to juxtapose their traditional regalia with a futuristic location. Getting to work with such highly professional and great people is an honor and I hope someone can take inspiration from this shoot."
Since 2014 Benjamin Oscar has been the photographer for the tribal government of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation. His work has been featured in print and online publications including powwows.com and Instagram. His work focuses on capturing portraits of individuals from all walks of life. He has been praised for his ability to bring out the extraordinary in the ordinary of everyday life through his photography. He also does weddings but only when guilted into it by his friends, he’d much rather drink and dance.
