Event Details

Dakota Community Artist-in-Residence (CAIR)
Gallery Walk @ The YES! House
Open Hours: August 15th – 20th from 4:00-6:30pm

Local artists Fern Cloud, Talon Cavender-Wilson, and Lisa Nez participated in a two-week “at-home” artist residency hosted by the Department of Public Transformation, Racing Magpie and Dakota Wicohan, with the goal of creating new works addressing the impacts of COVID-19 on their communities. Each artist used their unique art form to create an original work of art exploring themes of kinship, isolation, racism, tradition, and systemic inequities that have been amplified as a result of the pandemic.

Dakota CAIR artworks will be on display at The YES House (located at 726 Prentice St., Granite Falls, MN) from August 15th-20th from 4:00-6:30pm. You are invited to drop-in during open hours to experience the artists’ work in-person. The gallery walk experience will be limited to one household at a time; masks and safe social distancing will be required, as these pieces are meant to be experienced in quiet reflection of the times we are in. There is no cost to attend.

Please join us for this immersive experience addressing the impacts of COVID-19 in the Pezihutazizi Oyate (Upper Sioux Community) and Cansa’yapi (Lower Sioux Indian Community).Email publictransformation@gmail.com or call 952-486-0533 with any questions or for more information.

Dakota CAIR is presented by the Department of Public Transformation, Racing Magpie and Dakota Wicohan with support from Southwest Minnesota Arts Council and Southwest Regional Sustainable Development Partnership. And, in partnership with Pioneer PBS.
