Sherman Chaddlesone Arts & Letters Lecture Series

Chaddlesone graphicThe Chaddlesone series is a program of readings and cultural events the late Kiowa artist Sherman Chaddlesone established at Central. Each year, the series allows the Central community opportunities to interact with iconic, established, and emerging American Indian artists. In 2015, multiple on-campus partners, including Passport to Native America, the American Indian Studies program, the Native American Student Association, New Plains Review, the Department of English, and the College of Liberal Arts played a vital role in bringing one of Oklahoma's most distinguished artists to campus during Central's 125th anniversary.
