Anita Fields will give the 2022–23 Jeanne and Richard Levitt Lecture.

Born in Oklahoma, Anita Fields is a contemporary Native American multi-disciplinary artist of Osage heritage. She is known for her works which combine clay and textile with Osage knowledge systems. Her work examines the intricacies of cultural influences at the intersections of balance and chaos found within our existence.

Fields' work can be found in several collections, such as the Museum of the American Indian, Smithsonian, the Museum of Art and Design, New York City, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and the Heard Museum, Arizona.

Fields is a 2017-2022 fellow with the Kaiser Foundation Tulsa Artist Fellowship program. She received the 2021 Eiteljorg Museum of Contemporary Art Fellowship. Fields was recently named a 2021 National Endowment of the Arts Heritage Fellow and a 2021 Anonymous Was a Woman award.
