The idea behind the artist's signature, interactive show is based in history: When tribes still roamed the prairies, they spent their winters recounting great battles and hunting expeditions with help from an artist who'd render the exploits on a hide for posterity. In addition, Echo-Hawk, who believes art should be affordable for everyone, often auctions off his off-the-cuff work at these events.
Echo-Hawk will lift his brush at 6:30 p.m. at the venue inside the University Memorial Center, 1669 Euclid Avenue on the University of Colorado-Boulder campus. Admission is free and open to the public; get details at http://centerwest.org or call 303-492-4879
