The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - SUNDAY LIFE -

NOR­MAN — A bronze sculp­ture by Paul Moore, University of Ok­la­homa artist-in-res­i­dence, re­cently was pre­sented to the Chick­a­saw Na­tion for their sup­port of the OU Weitzen­hof­fer Fam­ily Col­lege of Fine Arts.

The sculp­ture de­picts Mary Thomp­son “Te

Ata” Fisher (1895-1995), award-win­ning sto­ry­teller and trained ac­tress of the Chick­a­saw Na­tion, whose one-woman in­ter­pre­ta­tions of Na­tive Amer­i­can folk­lore earned her na­tional and in­ter­na­tional acclaim through­out her 70-year ca­reer.

The Chick­a­saw Na­tion has served as the “Arts! Arts! Arts!” pre­sent­ing spon­sor four of the past five years and has made gen­er­ous do­na­tions to sup­port OU stu­dent artists.
