About Harvey Art Projects
Based in Sun Valley, Idaho and presenting events in New York, Los Angeles, & San Francisco, Harvey Art Projects is an organization dedicated to developing cultural awareness, understanding and appreciation of the finest Aboriginal Art in America through regular exhibitions and satellite events.
Aboriginal art is Australia's leading contemporary art movement yet it's origins are derived from the oldest continuous artistic tradition know to man. From its humble beginnings in the early 1970s, Aboriginal art continues to not only sustain an important world culture but also plays a vital role in returning country and spirit to its people.
Today, contemporary Aboriginal painting provides indigenous Australians significant economic and cultural stability through ongoing connection to family and country, and Tjurrkupa (Dreamtime). After 45 years of contemporary art production and international acclaim, Aboriginal art has firmly established itself as an important contemporary art movement in the international arena.

Her experience includes Curator of a number of significant US private collections. Additionally, Harvey serves on the Advisory Council for the Kluge-Ruhe Collection of Aboriginal Art at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville.
