Judith Lowry (Hammawi Band Pit River/ Mountain Maidu/ Washoe/ Scottish/ Irish/ Australian), Jingle, Jingle, 1997. Acrylic paint on canvas; 69¾ x 46½ x 1¾ in. Denver Art Museum: William Sr. and Dorothy Harmsen Collection, by exchange, 2007.48. Photography courtesy of Denver Art Museum
In Jingle, Jingle, Lowry confronts the greed and corruption that tribal casinos have brought to Indian communities. Her painting is not anti-gaming--she believes casinos are a legitimate exercise of native sovereignty--but rather a memorial to a cousin who was murdered after threatening to expose casino corruption.
