Jay B. Benham

Jay Benham is a member of the Kiowa tribe of Oklahoma. He was raised a part of the tribe and continues to raise his children as a part of it. The focus of his art is to tell the story of his inheritance, and the story of his Kiowa heritage. He aims to show the transition between the historic Kiowa customs and traditions, into a more modern, Christian, Western lifestyle. Benham's art is a show of the blend and transformation of the Kiowa tribe. His art is shown in many galleries around the country, from Sedona, AZ and Santa Fe, NM, to Tahlequah and Oklahoma City, OK. He has degrees in art education and is a Museum Educator at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, in Bentonville, AR.
