Chantelle Yazzie, artist and social worker, will present her artistic works and perspective on being an LGBTQ+ artist in the Las Cruces community on from 1-2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15. Following her presentation, attendees are invited to visit the Standing in the Light exhibit featuring local LGBTQ+ artists at the Branigan Cultural Center, 501 North Main St.

Yazzie is from Heart Butte, New Mexico, and is Diné (Navajo). Some of her art pieces have focused on social justice and bringing indigenous social and health disparities to light. She received her bachelor’s degree in social work from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She then returned to New Mexico where she obtained her master’s degree in social work from New Mexico State University.  

She works with Las Cruces Public Schools where she uses play and art therapy to assist with special education students. Yazzie is a licensed social worker and clinician in Las Cruces, and owns her own photography business.

The Branigan Cultural Center is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and is accessible by RoadRUNNER Transit Route 1 Stop 36.
