Adjacent to Commons, 2 Century Avenue SE, Hutchinson October 3rd through November 2nd: Lela Pierce is exhibiting work on paper, in an installation titled “Sankofa”, in the Willmar Gallery September 1st through 28th. Pierce draws on iconography from her African and European ancestry to explore notions of rebirth and transformation. Evoking the concept of the African Sankofa bird; which often manifests as a bird looking over one’s shoulder, originally found Akan art of Ghana. In its feet are pointed forward but its head is turned back, suggesting that one must look to the past in order to build a future.
