In between a successful career as a musician, singer, and songwriter, Norma Tanega was a prolific visual artist -- creating a vast number of paintings and mixed-media art over her lifetime. Noted for her bold use of color and geometric shapes, Tanega’s paintings in particular give a more nuanced view of her as an artist and her creative restlessness. Her artwork, along with photos, illustrations, journals, and other ephemera, are presented together for the first time in I'm the Sky as a testament to Tanega’s legacy beyond her music. Assembled from Tanega’s own collection shortly before her passing in December 2019, I'm the Sky details the different stages of Tanega’s life and career through her deeply personal artwork.
