About Lillian Pitt
Born on the Warm Springs Reservation in Oregon, Native American artist Lillian Pitt is one of the most highly regarded Native American artists in the Pacific Northwest. A descendant of Wasco, Yakama and Warm Springs people, Pitt creates work that draws on over 12,000 years of Native American history and tradition of the Columbia River region. She aims to give voice to her ancestors through her contemporary artistry, expressed in clay, bronze, wearable art, prints, and most recently, glass.
Lillian Pitt’s works have been exhibited regionally, nationally and internationally. They can also be found in public spaces, like parks, schools and cultural institutions throughout the Pacific Northwest. A notable example of these works is featured at the Vancouver Land Bridge, one of the seven “confluence” projects along the Columbia River, designed by renowned architect Maya Lin.
Pitt has received numerous awards and distinctions, including the 2007 Earle A. Chiles Award for Lifetime Achievement and the 1990 Governor’s Award of the Oregon Arts Commission, which declared that she had made “significant contributions to the growth and development of the cultural life of Oregon.
