About the Book
Like The Scar Project, this book is a work progress. It is a first attempt to reconcile some of the scars to their stories. The works presented in this collection are as they appear at the George Gustav Heye Center National Museum of American Indian exhibition HIDE: SKIN AS MATERIAL AND METAPHOR.
This publication includes an introductory essay by Amanda J. Graham, and was designed by Rosemary Arroyave.
