Event Details

Dakota Community Artist-in-Residence in the SMAC Gallery
In July and August The Department of Public TransformationRacing Magpie and Dakota Wicohan shared the projects from their three Dakota Community Artists-in-Residence, both virtually in a digital "shareback" and "in-person" at Granite Falls for private viewings at the Yes! House. The three Dakota Community Artists-in-Residence chosen for this project were Fern Cloud, Talon Cavender-Wilson and Lisa Nez. The artworks created during each artists "in home" residencies addressed the impacts of COVID-19 in their communities. The project was supported by the Southwest Minnesota Arts Council and the Southwest Regional Sustainable Development Partnership and was also in partnership with Pioneer PBS.
Starting January 14 through February 26 the SMAC Gallery is proud to present the three works of art from this project. The gallery will exhibit Fern Cloud's traditional painting on deer hide, blacksmith artist Talon Cavender-Wilson's series of three metal bowls, and Lisa Nez's infant-sized moccasins showcasing her traditional knowledge and artistic beading talents.
If you would like to learn more about all three of these projects through the informational videos that played during the Yes! House exhibit, visit:
