Nani Chacon

Nani Chacon is a Diné and Chicana artist, born in Gallup, New Mexico. Chacon’s practice includes large-scale site-specific public artworks, drawing, installation, and design. Primarily working as a painter and muralist, she has shown both nationally and internationally, creating projects that focus on community engagement, led by her personal philosophy that art should be an accessible, and meaningful catalyst for social change. Her work is recognized for its unique style, using figurative subject matter to explore the complexity of contemporary Indigenous culture and identities, bringing these voices to the forefront of public arenas.

Chacon received her bachelor’s degree in Education from the University of New Mexico in 2003. Notable Projects have been supported by; The National Endowment for the Arts, California Endowment for the Arts, US Consulate and Embassy in Russia, The Obama Foundation, NM Public Arts Foundation, National Museum of Mexican Art Chicago, Navajo Nation Museum, National Hispanic Cultural Center, and the Museum of Native Contemporary Art.
