In collaboration with the University of Arkansas Press, Art for a New Understanding serves as a exhibition catalog containing seven critical essays, covering topics of colonialism, Native American identity, gender roles and feminism. Aside from a playful use of linework and bold color, it is a straight-forward catalog that attempted to apply a quiet design to serve mainly as a vehicle for the artists and writers that it contained.
