Mario Martinez, "Brooklyn," 2004, acrylic and charcoal on canvas, 7 x 11 ft. Collection of The National Museum of the American Indian, Washington, DC.

On October 12, 2017, abstract painter and Yaqui Indian Mario Martinez sat down with Steven O'Banion, Director of Conservation at Glenstone, at the National Museum of the American Indian, NY, to discuss his life, work, and personal philosophy. This discussion is part of the third season of our on-going CALL/VoCA Talks series, hosted in partnership with the Joan Mitchell Foundation's Creating a Living Legacy (CALL) Program. These programs aim to highlight the innovative CALL initiative while also underscoring the crucial need for dialogue with artists around the production, presentation, and preservation of their work.
