Yá'át'ééh (Hello)!

Liv Barney is a Diné (Navajo) artist who creates work that often relates to her Indigenous American identity. She has a passion for art because in addition to representing parts of herself, it can bring communities together, express a variety of cultures, and tell people’s stories. To date, Barney’s work has been published multiple times in "Red Rising Magazine," a title centered on Indigenous artists and experiences. Additionally, she is one of the Indigenous artists included in an upcoming publication titled "Relational Constellation: An Indigenous Love Comics Collection" being put forward by Native Realities Press and Michigan State University Press.

 

Barney's work can also be seen locally in her current city of residence: C-bus, Ohio. One of her animations has shown in a shorts film festival at The Ohio State University's Center for the Arts. She's been one of the artists a part of the "An Evening with Art" fundraiser show at the Columbus Museum of Art put on by the Women's Board. She had a sold out solo show with S.Dot Gallery in 2019. Additionally, she's been a participating live artist at multiple events: 934 Fest put on by the 934 Gallery, a local mural/fundraising event called "Urban Scrawl," Community Pride, and Cloud City. She will also be a part of the upcoming Art Unbound III show at the Carnegie Gallery at the main location of the Columbus Metropolitan Library. Barney shares her art through social media, too, as a way of adding to the Native presence and voices in current society and the creative world.
