Dyani White Hawk (Sicangu Lakota), earned her MFA in studio arts in 2011 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  She completed a BFA in 2008 from the Institute of American Indian Arts.  White Hawk is a 2014 Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters & Sculptors Grant recipient, 2013 McKnight Visual Arts Fellowship recipient, a 2012 SWAIA Discovery Fellowship recipient and won the 2011 Best of Classification (Painting, Drawing, Graphics and Photography) at the Santa Fe Indian Art Market. She draws from her multi-cultural background and education to create paintings and mixed media works that speak to her upbringing as a Lakota woman in an urban American landscape.
