Frank LaPena

As a member of the Wintu people of Northern California, much of LaPena’s lifework has drawn upon and incorporated the traditions, images and philosophies of his indigenous culture. LaPena first exhibited in 1960 and has worked in painting, printmaking, sculpture, poetry, dance and mixed media. He’s also a retired professor of art and ethnic studies and former director of the Native American studies department at California State University in Sacramento.
