Fritz Scholder (1937-2005) is a well-known pop art and postmodern Native American artist, born in Breckenridge, Minnesota. Scholder was one-quarter Luiseño (a California Mission tribe), which spans Los Angeles and San Diego counties. Widely shown and highly respected, Scholder was a versatile artist, educated at several universities, including Sacramento State and the University of Arizona. He was invited by the Tamarind Institute to produce their first major project in New Mexico, a suite of lithographs entitled: Indians Forever. This began a large body of work in printmaking for Scholder, which allowed him to mix traditional considerations with a spontaneous, culturally critical pop art style. Scholder’s printmaking techniques include lithography, etchings, monotypes and his work is held in a number of major collections. In 2009, Governor Schwarzenegger posthumously awarded Scholder into the California Hall of Fame for a lifetime of important contributions in the arts and California culture.
