Native American artist, activist wins $10,000 award in Colorado Springs

Native American artist and activist Gregg Deal’s new downtown mural featuring his daughter, Sage Deal, has won him $10,000.

Art on the Streets jurors on Friday awarded the Peyton-based artist first place in this year’s downtown exhibit for “Take Back the Power,” a 66-foot-tall piece that seeks to bring awareness to Indigenous women, girls and LGTBQ people who face a high risk of going missing or being murdered. The mural is at 102 E. Pikes Peak Ave.
