Kevin Red Star was born on the Crow Indian Reservation in Lodge Grass, Montana. He was raised in a family that valued art and culture and where he developed an early love of drawing and music. This exposure and encouragement sustained him during his years in grade school during the time when Crow students were denied association with their language and cultural heritage. Later, when he was one of 150 students chosen to attend the newly established Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, he was encouraged to explore his history and culture through modern art techniques. Upon graduation, Red Star and several other Native students received scholarships to the San Francisco Art Institute. Here, he was exposed to the avant garde and political and social concerns of post-modern art. Since embarking on his professional artistic journey, the acknowledged master artist is considered a visual historian and ambassador for his Native Crow culture. In 1977, Kevin Red Star received an honorary Doctorate Degree in Fine Art from the Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Montana. Red Star’s works are the focal point of several important museum collections, including:
The Smithsonian Institution, National Museum of the American Indian
• CM Russell Museum
• Heard Museum
• Denver Art Museum
• Eiteljorg Museum
• Southwest Museum
• Whitney Museum of Western Art
• Institute of American Indian Arts Museum
• United States Department of State
And scores of others. Pursuing a successful career spanning three decades, over 100 large scale exhibitions have featured this celebrated artist’s work on canvas and paper.
