The Art of Jennifer M. Stevens

On View Now

Contemporary Native American cultures and traditions remain vibrant in Wisconsin and beyond. OPM features the work of a Native American artist in the Living Cultures section of People of the Waters annually. These installations include artwork and video that centers the voice of each artist. This year, we are proud to highlight Jennifer M. Stevens.

Jennifer M. Stevens is an Oneida potter, historian, and instructor. For over twenty-five years, she has developed talents in visual art, history, and opera singing and composition. Stevens researches Oneida pottery and specializes in recreating historic pots (1400-1600 CE) and prehistoric pots (1100-1300 CE). She is part of a revival movement of ancient Oneida pottery, which helps Oneida people connect with their ancestors and cultural traditions.
