  No December meeting

   While adhering to the objective and scientific procedures that serious rock art documentation and research require, it is also important that we recognize how we are personally drawn to the study and appreciation of rock art imagery. This not only helps us avoid pitfalls in documentation and interpretation, which may arise out of our own internal biases, but it also allows us to  appreciate how these images impact us in very personal and subjective ways. This presentation will discuss my own somewhat humorous introduction to rock art more than 30 years ago and how these intriguing and puzzling images led me on a journey of discovery regarding archaeology, the people who created them, and to a deeper connection and appreciation of my childhood home.

    Over the past 35 years, Jerry Dickey has recorded hundreds of rock art and archaeological sites for the Bureau of Land Management, the National Forest Service, and the National Park Service. He has authored and co-authored numerous articles in  publications such as  American Indian Rock Art, Rock Art Papers, the Pacific Coast Archaeological Society Quarterly, the Proceedings of the Three Corners Conference, and The Human Journey & Ancient Life in California's Deserts: Proceedings from  the 2001 Millennium Conference. He is also a co-author of the book Rock Art of the Grand Canyon Region (2013). Currently, Jerry is working on a multi-year archaeological survey of a portion of the northwestern rim of the Grand Canyon for the National Park Service.
